Curation and Writing

“Ella’s work engages with pedagogies of place, queer theory, community-based projects and gardening. Using auto-theory as a place to begin, Ella's writing finds space for critical theory in the scribbles on the margins of pages, interlaced within poetry, and in the pages of personal journals.”
