about

Evan St. Jones (they/them) is an amateur writer [?] interested in weird, bizarro, and horror fiction.

“Who are you?”

It may be that I still haven’t unearthed my identity in full to a point where I’d be comfortable talking about it, or it could be that I’m just a bore and cannot conceive of the words to describe myself as something more exciting than that. Hopefully I am more than that.

My first name is Evan; it was given to me at birth as a nod to my mother’s maiden name, while St. Jones is an amalgamation of my given last name with that of my partner. I’m a leftist of the anarcho- variety, and I identify as agender/non-binary and prefer they/them or he/him pronouns.

During the day, I work as a billing specialist for a non-profit that offers case management, housing, and other services to people living with HIV, as well as helping people get free access to PrEP (a medication that can lower the risk of contracting HIV). In the evenings, I spend a lot of my time reading, wishing I was writing or making art, but most often watching anti-multilevel marketing Youtube videos.

I helped my partner start the vintage brand Vessel Vintage in Shreveport, Louisiana. I’m also a co-founder of LGBTQIA+ arts organization, Queerport.
