Nic Alea

is a queer/non-binary interdisciplinary writer & intuitive with a BA in Creative Writing. They hold fellowship from the Lambda Literary Foundation and have work published in Muzzle Magazine, the Paris American, Write Bloody, BOAAT, Lambda Literary, Souvenir Magazine, Reservoir, decomP and others. In 2014, Nic was rated one SF Weekly's "Best Writers without a Book" and has performed at the National Queer Arts Festival, the Santa Cruz Music Festival, and Lit Quake.

They are currently working on a collection of essays and a few screenplays (both short & long) as well as a full length poetry manuscript about the 12th century mystic Hildegard von Bingen. 

Nic also moonlights as Soul Contract Tarot, offering tarot and intuitive counsel. They co-create with tarot to assess desires, fears, creativity, and innate wisdom to access empowerment and resiliency. Their practice is informed by emotional healing, inner child/teen work, the spiritual linking with the political, and deep compassion for the fragmented self.
