Lila Quinn is a poet, performer, and kinkster from rural Missouri. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and her work has appeared in Rabbit Catastrophe Review, TulipTree Review, and Boulder Weekly.

Her poem, “To Helen and River of A.A.'', was an honorable mention for TulipTree’s 2021 Wild Women story contest, and her story, “When Light Floats” was a finalist for Vocal Media’s Short Fiction Prize in 2022.

Lila began making erotic art in earnest just before the COVID pandemic. Like her writing, Lila’s photos and videos dance between raw, sexy, and sure-footed, centering feminine pleasure and playing with kinky types as a way of finding full, authentic embodiment for herself. More exploration than prescription, Lila’s vulnerability becomes her strength through her artistic alchemy and playful ethos.

She lives in Boulder, CO.
