fara tucker (she/her) is a writer, poet, teacher, storyteller, photographer, former therapist, current therapy client, and cat mom. She feels things very deeply. She's sometimes afraid of the dark, but isn't afraid of the darkness and thinks beauty can often be found there.
Words are her love language. And music. And laughter. And cheese. She has a hard time summing herself up.
Her poetry can be found in Train River Publishing's Spring 2020 Anthology; the Summer 2020 issue of Subjectiv. - a journal of visual and literary art from the Pactific NW; the QuillKeepers Press anthology: Soon, A New Day; and Raw Earth Ink's anthology: Creation and Cosmos. Her first piece, "The Baby Chicken," can be found in a drawer in her grandparents house.
Fara is active on Instagram where she regularly shares poetry and prose, gratuitous cat photos, and impeccably curated meme and tiktok collections.
Originally from Brooklyn, NY, she's called Portland, Oregon home since 2000. In her photography and writing, she loves to reveal beauty that's complicated, unexpected, or hidden in plain sight.
