Assistant Poetry Editor
BASIA WILSON is a poet from South Jersey. She holds a BA in English with a concentration in creative writing from Temple University, where she took courses such as Ecofeminist Poetics with Brian Teare. She also studied the intersection of psychogeography and poetry with Jena Osman, culminating in a manuscript about her local Wegmans that forever altered how she understands store-band crème brûlée ice cream and Yelp reviews. When she is not admiring crows or blue jays, she is thinking of the best possible dinner. She is trying to be more arboreal. You can find her at the park.
From Basia: "June Jordan once wrote, 'These poems / they are things that I do / in the dark / reaching for you / whoever you are.' I hope Platform Review brings an outpouring of voices heard and unheard into the field of contemporary poetry—voices that are willing and unafraid of moving through the dark to carry themselves and their readers somewhere phenomenal."
