Featured Artist: Melissa Jordan Willis

Melissa Jordan Willis writes and draws to process her own struggles with the fractured communication that comes from loving people who are non-verbal, have autism, heroin addiction and schizophrenia. She earned her B.A. at the U.C.L.A. School of Fine Art in 1991, and continues to draw and collage daily, sharing work on her blog, Motherland: Survival in the Real World, https://herointalk.blogspot.com/

Her Prose piece entitled “Two Worlds” was published in a 2018 issue of Desert Magazine, and her drawing “Flannel” will be published in an upcoming issue of LitBop: Art and Literature in the Groove.
