Nadalyn Gwendolyn Ismatu Bangura understands they have a very long name; they feel quite certain you can sound it out. Colorado raised and Chicago-based, Ismatu spends most of their days drinking tea and (lovingly) wishing the city was quieter. In addition to their first chapbook publication, they write extensively on the many conditions of love and the sticky nature of human connection; it thoroughly delights them to share with their online audiences. They have many fans, but none quite big as their sister and their cat, Lemon. You can find Ismatu at ismatu.gwendolyn across all socials.
