BIO

Now, you're a stranger on your own planet...

Zuri McWhorter is purely observational. Her art is exactly what you're thinking, but not keen on saying. It is an odd connection, but you accept it.


Born, raised and educated in the city of Detroit. A summer abroad in Ireland with Michigan State University. Playing the cello across western Europe in high school. An Interlochen Motion Picture Arts alum '10. These things, and more, add up to some vagabond shit in that pretty brain.


Zuri McWhorter is well-rounded as a writer, with publication in independent and scholarly journals. Short stories, poetry, journalistic, and screenwriting grace pages across the world.


She is self-published twice and founded Juste Milieu Literature & Art Zine in 2017. In the same year, she started screenwriting/film consulting and art direction full-time.


 

"ZURI MCWHORTER’S WRITING IS LIKE YOUR EVERYDAY MORNING COFFEE, IT GOES SMOOTHLY DOWN YOUR SOUL, THE TASTE OF EVERY RHYTHMIC LINE LEAVING YOU GLUTTONOUS. AND AS YOU GIVE INTO YOUR GLUTTON [AND SWIPE THROUGH HER INSTAGRAM] YOU START TO SEE A PAINTED PICTURE FORM, TWISTING ART INTO WORDS. THERE’S A FRESH EDGE TO HER PROSE, THE THOUGHTS OF A [23-YEAR-OLD] WOMAN’S UNAPOLOGETIC VIEWS ON LOVE, EXPERIENCES, AND LIFE."
