(M.F.A Image Text '25)
Monica Regan is a writer and image-maker based in the San Francisco Bay Area. In search of the accidental insights and surprising new dimensions which open up as linguistic and visual mediums collide, her current work is an inquiry into the profound uncertainty of our collective future. Combining poetry, essays, and photographs of found objects, the work explores the nature of individual, subjective experience against the backdrop of larger systemic failures and unraveling. Regan holds an M.F.A. in creative writing from San Francisco State University. Her writing has been published in VERSE, New American Writing, VOLT, sidebrow, and 26, among others, and she has exhibited images and multimedia works in shows at Lincart Gallery in San Francisco, Recology, Inc., and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. In her other vocation, Regan is a long-time social justice strategist and movement-builder who works with progressive leaders and organizations across the country. She lives in Oakland, California, with assorted family members and her dog, Oblio.
