I'm Aubrey Gates King, a poet, educator, and digital media specialist.


 Aubrey (she/they) is the 2021–22 Head Writing Fellow and a writing instructor at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University. They are also a digital media specialist at Parachute Strategies, a small, woman-owned marketing and strategic planning firm based in Portland, Ore.


She holds an MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics from the Jack Kerouac School, where she was an Allen Ginsberg Graduate Fellow. She also holds a BA in English Literature and Chinese Studies from Rhodes College.

Aubrey's work blends gratitude for the natural world with the terrors of living in the twenty-first century. Skeptical of meaning-making and highly experimental with form, their poetry seeks connection and disturbance.
