Irna Landrum

Writer & Organizer

Irna Landrum is a child of the bayou and a great lover  of the Mississippi River. She is an essayist, campaign writer, and world-class emoter with a ravenous curiosity about why humans love and hate the way we do. In 2016 she shifted to netroots organizing after over a decade of grassroots neighborhoods-based work. She is exploring the vast  potential of technology to connect and mobilize activists who are  creating the worlds they want to live in. A black queer woman and recovering evangelical raised in the reddest of states, her work dissects intersecting identities and politics. Irna is a 2010 Intermedia Arts Creative Community Leadership Institute fellow, a 2015 Givens Foundation for African American Literature Emerging Writers fellow, a  2016 Kairos Fellow for digital organizers of color, and a 2017 Voices of  our Nations Arts regional writer. You can usually find her writing on  her front porch or bicycling around the Minneapolis somewhere.
