“I try for a poetic language that says, ‘This is who we are, where we have been, where we are. This is where we must go. And this is what we must do.’”
-Mari Evans

Ife-Chudeni Oputa grew up in Fresno, CA, nurtured by the smells of manure, onions and fermenting grapes. Her poetry explores many subjects, including: the body, genealogy, language and hybridity. She is master’s student at Indiana University, Bloomington in both the Creative Writing and African American and African Diaspora departments.
