Marya Spont-Lemus (she/they) writes fiction and personal narratives, critically re-makes objects, and educates/facilitates/collaborates, often in public spaces. Questions guiding Marya’s work across these realms include: How does experience impact interpretation? How do personal choices, structural forces, and chance occurrences interact to create our lives and those of our characters? What kinds of experiences can effect transformations? Across her connected practices, Marya believes that greater understanding of one’s own life, as well as each other’s, can raise consciousness and plant seeds toward social change. She credits the deep, supportive relationships developed through informal writers’ groups as giving her the confidence to invest in and share her own work.
