About the Poets:

Sylvia Cameron Telafaro, is an award winning fiction writer, poet, story teller & activist. She is the current President of The African American Writers and Artists, Inc. of San Diego and Membership Coordinator for The Friends of the Malcolm X Library. Sylvia has had poetry and short stories published in several magazines and anthologies, including SDSU School of Social Work Textbook: “Cultural Pluralism. She  also was published in the Social Work Journal HBSE Special Edition for her award winning piece on the Killing of Michael J. Brown.

Elle is an award winning poet and vocalist. Her signature style pairs whimsical wordsmithing with musical undertones and progressive rhythms, yielding potent and captivating compositions. A seasoned performer, she’s played Off-Broadway and Showtime at The Apollo, has appeared on various major label recordings, her original spoken word opera RUN took first place at the 2022 Downtown urban Arts Festival, and a live showcase of her early works was the first ever original act to be featured on the legendary Café Wha? stage. Elle was born and built in NYC, but currently resides in sunny San Diego, where she decorates her days with word-wielding, motherhood, and tacos.

Karo Ska (she/they) is a South Asian and Eastern European gender-fluid poet living on unceded Tongva land. Their writing focuses on identity, mental health, survivorship, and the intersections of trauma and politics. Anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist, they find joy where they can. They have been published in Sobotka Literary Journal, Cultural Daily, Altadena Poetry Review, Marías at Sampaguitas, Glass: A Journal of Poetry among others. Their first full-length collection, loving my salt-drenched bones was released in February 2022 through World Stage Press.
