About Our Feature

Rob Mitchell is a poet born and raised in the south, originally heralding from Atlanta, GA. Writing has always been a form of catharsis and a bastion of creation for Rob, even from a young age. Growing up a quintessential, middle-class blerd, Rob’s poetry finds its foundations in the Black experience, the complications and divisions created by wealth, and anime.
When Rob isn’t performing poetry in Minneapolis or across the country, he can often be found haunting the halls of Target, talking about sales, or in a friend’s basement, playing yet another 10 hour board game.
