Hi, I’m Loré Yessuff. In attempt to make meaning,
I write poems and prose. My work has appeared
or is forthcoming in The New York Times, Vox,
Voicemail Poems, American Chordata, and other publications. 

In the past, I’ve worked as a Copywriter for Headspace
and Warby Parker, and freelanced for Bumble, Dame,
Big Cartel, Outdoor Voices, and other brands. 
(View my copywriting portfolio here.)

In my spare time, I write poembutter—a casual
newsletter about culture, meaning, and daily life.

and the incomparable camaraderie
between black strangers
