Sayuri Ayers is a Columbus poet and writer. She is author of two poetry collections, most recently Mother/Wound, released by Paula Lambert’s Full/Crescent Press. Her two forthcoming collections from Porkbelly Press, The Woman, The River and The Maiden in the Moon, celebrate myth and feminine power.

She is a Blackburn Fellow in Randolph College’s MFA program.

Join us at Bossy Grrls Pin-Up Joint, 2598 North High Street (in Old North Columbus) on Monday, June 5, at 7 PM. Bring a couple of poems for the open mic. Bring some extra cash or a credit card so you can help us compensate a continuing roster of exceptional poets. We’ll be looking for you.

And a continuing grateful shout-out to Bossy Grrls’ owners Cora Helton and Mike Folker for their generous support. 🥰
