Biography--LYNDA LA ROSE
Lynda La Rose is a poet/performance artist who has been writing poetry since 1993; she has been published in several poetry anthologies including I Love Your Poetry, What?!?! , Listen to Me: Shared Secrets From WriteGirl , San Gabriel Poetry Calendar, and the City Of Los Angeles African American Heritage Month Cultural Affairs Guide for 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2007 she wrote, performed and produced “Summerfruit”, a one-woman show told in the language of poetry/spoken word.
In 2016, Lynda hired SKY Palkowitz, avant-garde multimedia performance artist, director and dramaturge, to dramaturg and direct Summefruit—in 2017, they took the show to Samuel French Bookstore for a staged reading in April and to the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June. All the performances were a huge success, especially the Fringe—two oversold dates and standing ovations on both nights!
Lynda’s writing is based on her own personal experiences and is a continuation of her own journey. She is a member of the Walking Theatre Workshop at The Electric Lodge in Venice, CA.
