K. Ibura is a writer and visual artist from New Orleans, Louisiana—which is the original home of the Chitimacha Tribe. The middle child of five, she grew up in a city full of music and culture, a neighborhood full of oak trees and mosquitos, and a home full of arts and activism. She wrote her first story in college to cope with a racist incident that happened to a classmate. Since then, she has published essays about identity, race, and gender and fantastical short stories about mystical happenings in magazines and anthologies. She has written two short story collections for adults: Ancient, Ancient—Winner of the James Tiptree Award—and When the World Wounds. Her debut novel and first book for young people, When the World Turned Upside Down, is forthcoming in November 2021. Her debut young adult series is forthcoming in Fall 2022. She is passionate about sharing strategies for writing and personal freedom through her workshops, her Patreon posts, and her Notes From the Trenches ebook series. A member of the first generation of African Americans to grow up without segregation, she lives in Brooklyn, NY—which is the original home of the Lenape Tribe.Read more Read less
