Our Featured Artist: Landon Smith
Landon Smith (he/him) was born in LA but grew up in San Jose, CA. He earned his BA in English from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor and went to Mills College in Oakland to attain his MA in English Literature and Languages with a focus on black texts. When he was 12, his parents were going through a divorce, and his older sister, Alia, wanted him to have an outlet so she got him his first journal – that is how his lifelong journey with writing was born. Unconcerned with accumulating poetic accomplishments, he hopes that his work merely makes readers/listeners feel something – whatever it is. He credits much of his growth as a poet to his community at the Patrice Lumumba Writer’s Group, out of the East Side Arts Alliance in Oakland.
