Jacob Benavides

Jacob R. Benavides is a current Senior at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi studying English Literary Studies with minors in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Studio Art. His writing focuses on exploring the material and immaterial nature of an early 20 something year old, all the certain uncertainty included. He is particularly attentive to themes of Queer identity, love, mental health, familial identity, and the relation of bodies both physical and imaginary within the ever-shifting landscape of existence in South Texas. Jacob has previously been published in the Windward Review, with Texas Poetry Assignment and in the Notes app on his phone. He received a HAAS writing award for creative writing in 2020 and is currently working on a collection of poetry entitled The Melting of Mars (and other bodies).
