Denise Grollmus is a writer, scholar, teacher, web designer, and translator who was the Simpson Center's Communications Manager from 2018-2020. 

Rae Paris is from Carson, California with roots extending to New Orleans. Her writing, research, teaching, and service are layered in land, memory, resistance, Black, Indigenous, and Brown futures, and love.

My work as a scholar and poet is united by a focus on textual materiality—from the surface of the page to the surface of language. My poetry is highly attuned to the texture of words, their resonances and slippages, often drawing on etymology and language play.
