Cassandra Troyan is a writer, ex-artist, and pétroleuse whose writing, described by Blake Butler, “takes the Sade-ian end of the oversharing shtick, turning one's own private human pain into a diorama reflecting the environments and brains that birthed it.” Their work demarcates spaces for experience through exploration of myths, normative (gender) roles, historical legacies, and cultural influence as a means to re-organizing agency in the disorganization of daily life. As a desirous voyeur wanting to reanimate the most gorgeous impulses in the unlikeliest of places, they are a trans-historical operator deriving pleasure and power from situations of submission, violence, labor, queer romance, sex work, horror, and capital.
They are the author of THRONE OF BLOOD (Solar Luxuriance, 2013), BLACKEN ME BLACKEN ME, GROWLED (Tiny Hardcore Press, 2014), KILL MANUAL (Artifice Books, 2014) and the chapbook HATRED OF WOMEN (Solar Luxuriance, 2014). Forthcoming in 2016 is a chapbook from Kenning Editions' Ordinance series, entitled "FREEDOM & PROSTITUTION."
