Tatiana is a MFA candidate in poetry at Emerson College. She is an assistant editor of poetry for the literary journal Redivider and a 2017 Pushcart Prize XLI nominee. Her writing explores identity, trauma, especially inherited trauma and what it means to heal. She feels especially good when someone tells her that they felt something by reading her work. Her first collection of poems “for the love of black girls” was released in July 2017. She has been published in Fog Machine, Hypertrophic Press, Maps for Teeth Magazine, Madcap Review and Broad! Magazine and has performed at the Boston Poetry Slam and the Bowery Poetry Club.
