As an English teacher and spoken word artist, Lucia plays with stories in the classroom and on the mic. Her poetry cradles past versions of herself, her family, and her Italian heritage. Lucia is a recipient of the 2022 QWF Spoken Word Prize and was a finalist at the 2021 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam. As an organizer, she brought McGill University its first-ever slam (2020) and oversaw the Grove Campus Poetry Show (2022). Her work is published to the TEDx, Brickyard Spoken Word, Toronto Poetry Slam, and Bankstown Poetry Slam YouTube channels, as well as in online and print publications. She is completing an M. A. in Educational Leadership.
