We are thrilled to announce that after spending 8 weeks in residence, Rashaun J. Allen will do a public reading on Friday January 11th at 6pm. Join us at the House on the Hill to get an insight of his work and to join the conversations around it.
Rashaun J. Allen is the first Fulbright scholar in SUNY Stony Brook’s MFA in Creative Writing & Literature program history. A Vermont Studio Center and Arts, Letters, and Numbers residency recipient whose two independently published poetry chapbooks: A Walk Through Brooklyn and In The Moment became Amazon Kindle Best Sellers in African American Poetry. He has been nominated for Sundress Publication’s 2018 Best of the Net anthology in Creative Non-Fiction and was a 2017 Steinberg Essay Contest Finalist in Fourth Genre. His writing has appeared in TSR: The Southampton Review, Tishman Review, Rigorous, Auburn Avenue, and Poui. When not writing or thinking about writing, he runs to scream at the top of his lungs the moment he crosses the finish line. Find more of his work at
