Franny Choi will be this month's Parallax feature. Last time she was in town she said she was about 90% convinced that she should move to Chicago. This woman would be an AMAZING addition to the community. Think about what a blessing it's been since Fati moved here! I propose that we start drafting amazing young talent (we are a TEAM after all). Check out the bio from her website. Let's show this poet some love! I'm going to present her with the signatures at the show. SIGN HERE.
Franny Choi lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where she has spent the last three years working in youth, education, and grassroots organizing spaces. Her first collection of poems, Floating, Brilliant, Gone, was released on Write Bloody Publishing in March 2014. Her poems and stories have appeared in Poetry, PANK, Folio, Solstice, Fringe, Apogee, and others. A Pushcart Prize nominee, she has been a finalist at the National Poetry Slam, the Individual World Poetry Slam, and the Women of the World Poetry Slam. Through Project V.O.I.C.E. and the Providence Poetry Slam, Franny teaches creative writing in classrooms and community centers in her city and across the country.
