E. K. Keith is a Latinx poet who calls San Francisco home, but her hometown is Houston where she learned to write in the sprawl. She performs her poems on the street corner and takes the mic at coffee shops, bars, and radio stations. Her work appears online and in magazines on all three coasts and places beyond, and ORDINARY VILLAINS is her first book of poetry. E.K. organizes Poems Under the Dome, San Francisco's annual open mic celebration of Poetry Month inside City Hall. Her work as a public school librarian creates opportunities for her to make the world a better place every day.
