Jade Sylvan is currently quite busy producing Spider Cult the Musical, which will run one weekend only, June 24-26th at Oberon Theater. This spectacular promises to be the apocalyptic lesbian sci-fi horror burlesque musical of the century. Jade wrote the script and the lyrics to the original score by Catherine Capozzi. Concept and choreography by Fem Bones. Please come. It will be very special. #SpiderCult

Jade has been called a “risque queer icon” by the Boston Globe and won a few awards for writing in various media and genres. Their book, Kissing Oscar Wilde (Write Bloody 2013), a novelized memoir about the author’s experience as a touring poet in Paris, received some very nice reviews, and was a finalist for the New England Book Award and the Bisexual Book Award. Jade’s had essays published in places like The Washington PostBuzzFeed, and The Toast, and is now returning to their roots — smut and sci-fi.

Novelization of the Film TEN

The Spark Singer

Jade Sylvan’s poems are ornaments to holidays that don’t exist yet. Something with candles. Our first instinct is to treat them with extreme care, but not out of fragility, just the understanding that the sacred has occurred. Magic. Too much of the world fit into this small ritual.” —  Brian Ellis, author of Uncontrolled Experiments in Freedom
