Wren Awry is an essayist, editor, and aspiring archivist interested in the connections between food and collective liberation, anti-capitalism, and queerness. Their essays have been published by The Rumpus, Entropy, Blindfield Journal and in the book Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief, among other places; and the anthology they edited, Nourishing Resistance: Stories of Food, Protest, and Mutual Aid is forthcoming from PM Press in 2023. They were raised in the NYC metro area but now live in Tucson, Arizona.
While they’re currently pursuing a Masters of Library and Information Science, much of Wren’s learning has taken place in anarchist collective spaces, feminist book stores, direct action campaigns, as part of organizations for environmental and border justice, and in dish pits and on prep lines in restaurant kitchens. For all of their many teachers, they are grateful.
