I teach writing in Houston, Texas, at the University of Houston, with Inprint, Grackle & Grackle and Writers in the Schools (WITS). My writing can be found in ARTWIFE, Flyway: Journal of Writing and Environment, Boneshaker, and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. I co-host a podcast on the 604 Podcast Network, Bittersweet Infamy, where my dear friend Taylor Basso and I tell each other infamous stories.

I am a recipient of the Houston Arts Alliance Support for Artists and Creative Individuals 2020 grant that helped support the postcard poetry and art project, East End Postales. I am the 2023 Writer-in-Residence at the UH Coastal Center and a Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts Scholar-in-Residence for 2021-2023. (You can even watch an ekphrastic writing lesson I taught at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston as part of my residency.) Originally from San Diego, California, I am perpetually at work on a novel-in-stories set there: Fuck You, El Niño.

My work thrives on collaboration. So, reach out! getintouch@josephinemitchell.com
