Emerging poets from Falú’s New York City Regional Workshop “LOVE, Above All Things” share new work. 

 

ABOUT THE REGIONAL WORKSHOP
Shortening the distance between academia and authenticity, LOVE, Above All Things is designed to investigate the sweet spot connecting conventional craft and the writer’s voice. This series will focus on themes like love and forgiveness. This is a generative writing workshop where participants will build upon a single work for the first hour. The remaining time will be dedicated to analyzing and discussing artists ranging from bell hooks to Pusha T, Du Bois to Lizzo in an effort to create new work that reflects us and only us.

 

A graduate of Pratt’s MFA Writing in Activism Program and a Master of Social Work student at Stony Brook University, Falú works as a Social Worker, as well as a traveling teaching artist. An International Slam Champion and Cave Canem Fellow, she is published in several anthologies and uses her writing as activism work for several organizations. Falú’s other projects include “Niggas Die Everyday”, an art gallery and exhibit she co-curated, and her one-woman show turned writing workshop, ‘Love, Above All Things’. She is the mother of two, a loyal Brooklynite, and believes in fashion. Seriously.
