Hello, I’m Shel Raphen. I’m a librarian living and working in Philadelphia. Librarianship takes up most of my time these days, but I hope you still enjoy my various creative projects which live here. Most of my newer writing lives on my Cohost blog: https://cohost.org/shel.

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 email is shelraphen@gmail.com
