First-generation Queens-born poet Nabila Lovelace, who graces the Pasadena City College English department as 2020 Writer-in-Residence for October, is back online on Thursday, October 15, for a writing workshop for the PCC community where she shares some tips she discovered in her own writing journey.
The workshop will be live on Facebook starting at 1 p.m.
Earlier, on October 7, Lovelace led a conversation and reading from her first poetry collection, “Sons of Achilles,” published by YesYes Books in 2018.

She is a 2016 Poetry Witch Magazine Summer Solstice Bop Contest finalist, a 2016 Vinyl 45 Chapbook Contest finalist, a 2015 Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop fellow, a finalist for the Emerge-Be-Surface fellowship 2014, and a winner of the 2013 Poets and Writers Amy Award.
Her work has either been published or is forthcoming in Narrative Northeast, Washington Square Review, Day One, Winter Tangerine: Hands Up Don’t Shoot, ESPN and Vinyl.
Lovelace is co-founder of The Conversation Literary Festival. Her editorial work includes screening for Callaloo Journal, assistant poetry editor at Black Warrior Review, and co-poetry editor for The Offing.
