Adrienne Novy (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist and Bettering American Poetry
nominee from Geneva, IL. She is the author of trisomy 22 and Crowd Surfing
With God (Half Mystic Press, 2018), and is the social media editor for
FreezeRay Poetry. Her work can be found in FreezeRay Poetry, Harpoon
Review, Button Poetry, NAILED Magazine, Rising Phoenix Press, and
Maudlin House, among others. Her most recent work has been focusing on
the ways that emo music and the music that we loved act as vessels for healing
and survival. She loves My Chemical Romance and she loves being alive.
Crowd Surfing With God is a coming of age journey through poems: a story of self-acceptance that discusses growing up with a rare genetic disorder & mental illness, family & being in a multifaith household, pop culture, & the acts of playing & listening to music bringing you closer to yourself & to healing.
She will be joined by Anna Caroline Stuligross, Miss.K, and Rachel Evelyn Sucher.
