JD HEGARTY is between names, between genders, and between good night's sleep. They are a lawyer by day, a poet by night, an essayist by twilight, and a dungeon master on Tuesdays. They received their MFA from Hamline University. JD’s work can be found in White Stag and in On Passing, their first chapbook, published by Red Bird Chapbooks, where they are a poetry editor. They live in haunted Saint Paul with two loud grey cats.
