My name’s Erica Avey, not Avery. I’m always writing. Recording sensations and ideas. Things I notice. Mostly poems and articles about drugs.




After five years abroad in Berlin, Medellín, & Melbourne, I’m back home in San Francisco.




My writing has been published in Psychedelic Press UK [PRINT]DoubleBlind, Psymposia, Human Parts, and Michael Pollan’s Trips Worth Telling series. Poems in the Shanghai Literary Review and Awakenings Magazine. My psychedelic inquiry has been featured in The Economist, The Guardian, Women’s Health UK, Psychology Today, and Al Jazeera Live. I previously managed editorial content at Clue, a female health app, and Ticketfly, a ticketing platform for festivals and independent venues.
