I SAVE MYSELF EVERYDAY. WRITING SAVES LIVES.
Rebeca Lois Lucret is a poet, writer, and spoken word artist. Her work explores her Afro-Latino roots, culture, and an ever-evolving identity. She is a member of the New York City Latina Writer’s Group (NYCLWG) and was a key member of the world fusion band Machete Movement.
Rebeca has appeared in various NYC venues, some of which include Lit Crawl Brooklyn, The Glitter Pomegranate Series, The Smokin’ Word Open Mic Series, The Urban Juke Joint, Travesías Urbanas/Urban Crossings Poetry Reading, the New York City Poetry Festival at Governor’s Island and was a featured artist in the Full Circle Ensemble's sold-out show "From the Page to the Stage" at the National Black Theatre in Harlem.
Rebeca’s poems have been published in journals and anthologies, some of which include: Ty(po-e:tic)us Literary Journal, Centro Voices: Letras, "The BX Files" Anthology benefiting El Fogon, Contemporary Haibun Online (CHO) Lit Journal, The Abuela Stories Project Anthology and Brilliant Flame! Amiri Baraka: Poems, Plays, Politics for the People Anthology.
Rebeca’s latest project has been the development and success of the play, Live Big Girl. Rebeca is one of three writers and cast members and is forever grateful for the Live Big Girl experience. She believes writing heals and knows that the process of writing Live Big Girl not only changed her, but it also changes the receiver.
When Rebeca isn’t writing poems or nesting in Pablo Neruda’s pages, you can find her working on her memoir, Dandelion Strands.
