Salem Paige (they/them) is a transgender poet whose works revolve around the exploration of identity, technology, space, nature, discomfort, and the places where they all intertwine. Their work can be found in their debut collection of poetry, The Third Self (2023, Sunday Mornings at the River Press) and their chapbook to grow roots (2023, bottlecap press), as well as many literary magazines, journals, and anthologies. Paige lives and works on Algonquin Anishinaabe territory (so-called Ottawa, Ontario), where they spend time napping excessively, going on walks to free little libraries, hunting lightroots in the depths of Hyrule, and annoying their partner and their two cats. More on Paige can be found on their website
