About Our Speakers



Nicole J. Georges is a writer, illustrator, podcaster, and professor from Portland and LA. She is the author of the award-winning graphic memoirs Calling Dr. Laura and Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home. Her work explores themes including identity, family secrets, queer community, animals, self-help, and the inner workings of a queer, punk feminist from a Syrian-American home. Georges teaches at California College for the Art’s MFA in Comics Program. She is the host of the queer art, advice, and vegan food podcast, Sagittarian Matters, and the Murrow award-winning podcast, Relative Fiction.



Samiya Bashir, called a “dynamic, shape-shifting machine of perpetual motion,” by  Diego Báezis a poet, writer, librettist, performer, and multi-media poet whose solo and  collaborative work has been widely published, performed, installed, printed, screened,  experienced, and Oxford comma’d from Berlin to Düsseldorf, Amsterdam to Accra,  Florence to Rome, and across the United States. Sometimes she makes poems of dirt. Sometimes zeros and ones. Sometimes variously  rendered text. Sometimes light. Bashir is the author of three poetry collections, most  recently Field Theories, winner of the Oregon Book Award. Bashir’s honors include the Rome Prize in Literature, the Pushcart Prize, New York Council for the Arts and Oregon’s Regional Arts & Culture Council fellowships, among  numerous other awards, grants, and residencies.
