Jovan Julien currently makes home in Atlanta, Georgia, by way of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Haiti. After 21 years being incubated in the North, they began to make their way back towards the beloved Caribbean. As a storyteller, organizer, and facilitant educator, Jovan has been working for years in the practice of building Beloved Community through the practice of radical witnessing. Whether as a part of the “Beyond Borders: Peoples of the Caribbean and Latin America” radio collective that broadcasts weekly, a regional organizer at Project South, a Ph.D student at Georgia Institute of Technology, or most important a member of their communities, Jovan works tirelessly to design elements both analog and digital to bring community closer together. Whether in the South of the United States, or the greater Caribbean, Jovan’s current work focused on transformational change by building tools for open and honest dialogue and radical democratic governance by community. As a photographer interested in education, a facilitator working to protect memory, and an engineer interested in the long term sustainability of their community, Jovan brings a particular focus to developing group practices and midwiving our most radical dreams into existence.

we are whispered into this new land, this old land, whispered anew
i tuck myselves under coffin nails. and then i am the sun like a nairobi fly, burning spine and skin.
The last deer in heaven flees, and Sestu pursues.

Strange Horizons
28 Feb 2022
We would like stories that are joyous, horrific, hopeful, despondent, powerful and subtle. Write something that will take our breath away, make us yell and cry. Write unapologetically in your local patois and basilects in space; make references to local events and memes to your heart’s content. Write something that makes you laugh and cry. Indulge in all the hallmarks of your heritage that you find yourself yearning for in speculative literature, but know that we will not judge you based on your authenticity as a Southeast Asian.
