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.
