Poet and playwright Joanna Imogen Davidson serves as Poetry Editor for Treehouse literary magazine. Her ten-minute play “Unfolding” was read recently at the Women’s Theatre Festival’s Occupy the Stage 2018. In 2015 she was a student in the Gilbert-Chappell Distinguished Poets Series. Her poems have appeared in the anthologies Witness: Appalachia to Hatteras and Heron Clan IV. A native of Wilkes County, NC, she can’t help but draw much from her Appalachian heritage and accent even while living in other parts of the state. She has been chosen to participate in the West End Poetry Festival, 2018.
Davidson is a queer, transgender woman, a southern belle with love of hats and an unfortunate penchant for verbosity who has worked in many fields more recently freelancing as a writer and IT consultant. She hones her activism along with her writing career and volunteers with the North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition, as well as helping run the Trans & GNC Closet at the LGBTQ Center of Durham. Davidson also is a member of the North Carolina Writers’ Network and the North Carolina Poetry Society. A Virgo that writes poems, plays, and short stories, she has the irrational expectation of actually finishing a novel someday.
