WELCOME TO THE BEGINNING

 

About Joycely

WRITER | PERFORMER 
TRANSFORMATIVE SPACE HOLDER

I started writing at 8 years old because I had been  silenced as a child within the hierarchy of Black oppression. I was told to“Be seen not heard” and that “I know better than you because I am older.”
Writing became  my resistance and my release. My writing allows me to process, to live, to continue. 
I write to heal myself and to heal Black & Brown women and femmes. 
I write because curiosity drives me.  I have so many questions about this life.  I want to learn, I want to learn from my fuck ups and other people's fuck ups and people to learn from mine. 
This is my invitation to learn together.

Dancing In The Presence of Men: A Book of Love & Lovers

JANUARY 12, 2020

International storyteller and performance poet Joyce Lee reflects on 15 years of lovers and her life of loving and learning in Dancing in the Presence of Men. She explores the raw emotion and physicality of love without censorship or permission, examining loss, grief, sensuality, self-ownership and healing. Sonya Renee Taylor (author of The Body Is Not An Apology) says, "The poems in Dancing in the Presence of Men are a map toward what it means to gather up the far flung pieces of our womanhood and mosaic ourselves back into source magic. Joyce Lee's new work dances, inviting us all to do the same, no matter who's watching."
