My name is Mikal McKay, a junior attending Binghamton University. I’m currently an English, Creative Writing major, also minoring in Africana Studies. I am a writer, poet, and spoken word artist. I currently administrate a blog called The Phoenix Lounge which mission is to become a place where creators of all mediums and of all backgrounds have a safe space to create and share their art. The Phoenix Lounge is also where I post my poems, spoken word performances, and any other written work. I’m in the middle of creating a poetry book and also a novel so stay on the lookout on new works from me or my pseudonym, MiKelangelo.
