Meet “College Try” Host Nicole Shawan Junior

Mar 16 2023 @ 7:00PM

The profound and prolific Nicole Shawan Junior joined the No, YOU Tell It! community as a storyteller for our 2020 “Coming & Going” team-up show with Lambda Literary!

That was our first Zoom show due to the pandemic, so we are extra excited to have Nicole BACK & IN PERSON as a story director and co-host at Symphony Space.

Grab your tickets here and learn more about Nicole below.

Nicole Shawan Junior (they/them) was bred in the bass-heavy beat and scratch of Brooklyn, where the cool of inner-city life barely survived crack cocaine’s burn. Their work appears in Oprah DailyGuernicaZoraGay MagThe Feminist Wire, and elsewhere. Nicole has received residencies and fellowships from Hedgebrook, Tin House, Periplus, NYFA, Lambda Literary, the San Francisco Public Library’s James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center, and more. Their literary art has received support from Jerome Hill Artist Fellowship, Hurston/Wright Writers Week, Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, V.O.N.A., and others. Nicole is the founder of Roots. Wounds. Words.—a literary arts revolution that serves BIPOC storytellers, deputy director of PEN America’s Prison and Justice Writing, and former editor-in-chief of Black Femme Collective. They have guest edited for The Rumpus, and served on the editorial teams at Women’s Studies Quarterly of The Feminist Press, SLICE Magazine, and more. Nicole curated Raising Mothers’ limited Justice Involved Mothers column, which was penned by formerly incarcerated Black women.
