Sydney Valerio will read poetry from her one-woman show Matters, from the Mujeres, the Magic, the Movement and the Muse anthology and from her MFA coursework.

Each project contributes to her development as a poet concerned with documenting environmental, cultural, and social factors that shape her perspective. Her one-woman show zooms into her identity as a Bronx child, the by-product of the Dominican countryside. Work from the anthology explores the sources of strength found in the spiritual and natural worlds; her MFA coursework creates the foundation for what she’s working on next.

This program concludes with a Q&A facilitated by Bronx Writers Center Director Charlie Vázquez.
