Lucia (Lu-chi-a) is a spoken word poet based in Tiohtià:ke (Montréal).

As an English teacher and spoken word artist, Lucia plays with stories in the classroom and at the mic. Her poetry cradles past versions of herself, her family, and her Italian heritage. Lucia is a recipient of the 2022 QWF Spoken Word Prize and a two-time Canadian Individual Poetry Slam finalist. As an organizer, she brought McGill University its first-ever slam (2020) and oversaw the Grove Campus Poetry Show (2022). Her work is published to the TEDx, Brickyard Spoken Word, Toronto Poetry Slam, and Bankstown Poetry Slam YouTube channels, as well as in online and print publications. 

"Lucia De Luca is a highly skilled and talented storyteller who is proof that the art of spoken word is very much alive and thriving amongst the younger generations. With a remarkable sense of rhythm, pacing, breath, and imagery, Lucia De Luca threads together stories that are personal and intimate, and yet resonate in a universal way. She is a rising star to watch out for!"
