Ashunda Norris

Years: 2017, 2019


Ashunda Norris is country down to her bones. Born and raised in the heart of rural, red clay Georgia, she carries the spirits of her foremamas into the room each time, every time. Her honors include fellowships from Cave Canem, the New York State Summer Writer’s Institute and a residency at The Lemon Tree House. A Black feminist, filmmaker, poet and teacher, Ashunda loves hot water cornbread, obscure cinema, star gazing, the ocean and celestial Sirius. She lives in the city of angels.
