This summer, I was awarded a Brooklyn Poets Fellowship for Cynthia Cruz’s class called “Archive as Resistance”. After this class, I was approached about becoming a poet of the week, which included a feature of my poem, “Can u talk?”, as well as an interview about various things relating to Brooklyn and poetry. Check it out here!
This summer I participated in the third cohort of The Public Theatre's BARS Workshop in 2017. Along with nine other artists, I created and collaborated on pieces written entirely in verse. The workshop included masterclasses with Sarah Kay, Cynthia Erivo, James Monroe Iglehart, Jasmine Cephas Jones, among others. The workshop was brought together each week under the mentorship of Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs.
