Above is a still from Selah and the Spades: an Overture, a series of photographs, short films, and prose pieces made by Tayarisha Poe in 2014 with a feature film based on the project on its way. 

Name: Tayarisha Poe   //   Occupation: writer, filmmaker, photographer   //   Age: 26   //   City: Philly, PA   //   Instagram: @tayarishasaurusrex   //   Astrological sign: pisces

When you're not creating: Reading fiction, most likely. I tend to keep the kindle stocked.

To cope with a long commute: Audiobooks!! Ones that I’ve already read. Have listened to the Harry Potter series for a countless number of hours. Still excellent.  

Best work environment: Full cup of coffee, planner open, headphones blasting Beyonce’s LEMONADE, clean table full of a freshly marked up script at a busy cafe in West Philly.

Favorite interview you've done:

The future: The final chapter of The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. Future may be dismal, but we love and live and continue on anyway.

What's next: Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab in January with Selah and the Spades

Ladies we should know: Anna Rose Holmer, Nicole Rainteau, Angela Bey!
