I’m Shel. I’m a transsexual dog furry, transcendentalist cult survivor, and Communist Jewish Troublemaker. I live and work in Philadelphia as a librarian in training. My ideal job is to work on projects such as Sailing Rough Waters for half my time, and working a public library reference desk the other half of the time. I also enjoy teaching.

This website is where my various creations and projects live, or where I link to them if they don’t live here. These days I mostly write poetry, but you will also find here self-help articles, educational listicles on feminist science studies, weird music, a podcast, and some old text generators I made a while back.

My public Mastodon is @shel@cybre.space, My twitter is @workingdog_ and my email is shelraphen@gmail.com
