Michael Todd is an essayist from Southwest Virginia. He currently lives in Madrid, Spain, where he studies Spanish and works as an ESL teacher. He earned his BFA in sculpture and extended media from Virginia Commonwealth University and since graduation has worked as a scenic designer, freelance journalist, figure model, and, of course, barista. His work engages with ideas of queer identity, bodies and intimacy, and free will and inheritance, among other themes. One of his recent favorite reads was Mothers by Rachel Zucker, and he continues to find new life with every read of Bluets by Maggie Nelson.
