Lexi Spino is a 25-year-old poet from York, PA. She has a chapbook called "I'm A Wanderer, Not A Runaway" and a spoken word EP called "Suicidal Since Birth". She is very heavy into the art scene around York and has recently become one of the two administrators of the poetry program at The Parliment. When she isn't writing or being an active member of the art society she is running around like a five-year-old with her daughter. The year of 2017 will bring her next poetry book titled "This Is Not For You" as well as another music/spoken work collaboration.
