Cleveland Wall is a poet, editor, and teaching artist living in Bethlehem, PA. She was born in Philadelphia and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her poetic tone has been likened to that of an extraterrestrial, an affiliation Ms. Wall neither confirms nor denies. Her first full-length collection, Let X=X was released by Kelsay Books in 2019. Her work has also appeared in Mobius, Full of Crow, Philosophical Idiot, Schuylkill Valley Journal, and beyond.
Cleveland is involved with several ongoing performance projects, including The Starry Eyes, a poetry/guitar duo whose debut album, The Garden of Terrors and Delights is set for release early in 2020. She is also a founding member of the poetry improv troupe No River Twice and cohost of Tuesday Muse, a monthly performance series at the Ice House in Bethlehem, PA.
