D. Allen is a queer & genderqueer poet, teacher, and multidisciplinary artist living in Minneapolis. They completed an MFA in Poetry at the University of Minnesota in 2017 and are currently a 2019 20% Theatre Company Q-STAGE Fellow and a 2019-20 Jerome Hill Artist Fellow. D.’s first book, A Bony Framework for the Tangible Universe (The Operating System), was released in spring 2019.

Using poetic and essayistic forms and a range of other artistic media, D.’s work explores the body, illness, disability, intimacy, the natural world, sexuality, and gender. This work takes many forms: word architectures, painted surfaces, light drawings, textured sounds, soft spaces, slow dinners, sustained listening, tender assemblages, quiet gardening, deep breaths. They value each of these endeavors equally.
