My name is Maya. I was born a  Black girl in New Orleans, Lousiana. I am 24 years old. 

My writing focuses mainly on the documentation of intense emotions that align with subjects akin to suffering, ire, neurosis, turmoil, shadows, etc. It is cathartic for me to write in such a way. I hope to push out work that helps others reach catharsis when they come into contact with it as well

That being said, the content of my work is not a suggestion that I am a person that is not amicable and open. So, don't let my preferred subject matter intimidate you should you feel compelled at all to approach me. I love poetry. I love fiction. And I love to read. I possess a great adoration for ALL forms of art. And I love to utilize any opprutunity that I have to improve my craft.

I am not perfect. I make mistakes. And I am still learning as I go indefinitely.
