Becky Houston is a former social worker turned poet who has been scribbling angsty musings in corners with night lights since she was a little girl. Her poetry explores themes of mental health, desire, sexuality, relationships, motherhood, feminism, and social justice. Her poem “Cold Floors and Blueberry Bread” was published in the anthology “Song of Ourself: Voices in Unison”, which was awarded the Bronze Medal for General Fiction/Literature in the 2020 Living Now Book Awards. Originally from the U.S., Becky is now based here on Ngunnawal Country. You can find more of her work on Instagram and Facebook @alittlespacetoholdalot.
