Jessica Mejia

San Francisco State University
Graduate Student
Jessica Mejia is a scholar and poet based in San Francisco. She is finishing her MA in comparative literature at San Francisco State University with a focus on 20th Century Literature of the Americas, and was selected by the California Pre-Doctoral Program as a Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholar for the 2017-18 academic year. She is an active performer and organizer for the Flor y Canto Literary Festival in the Mission. Her poetry explores the transformative nature of the family unit, music as an element trauma and healing, and the Salvadoran diaspora. She hopes one day to teach Latin American and U.S. poetry in any and every department possible, all the while sharing her love of scholarship and the priceless experience of finding one's local literary community.
