Houston-based writer Katie Oxford has a unique way of looking at the world, which she details in her "Tattered Jeans" column for CultureMap. Oxford was born and raised in Beaumont, where her memoir-in-progress, Broken Bowls and Wooden Spoons, is based. She has twice been a juried poet in the Houston Poetry Festival. Recently, one of her poems was honored at the Jambalaya Writers' Conference in Houma, La., and will be featured in an anthology.
