As an English teacher and spoken word poet, Lucia De Luca plays with stories in the classroom and at the mic. She is a community and self-taught narrative poet whose work cradles tales of her past self, family, Italian heritage, chronic illness, and love. Lucia is a recipient of the 2022 QWF Spoken Word Prize, a two-time Canadian Individual Poetry Slam finalist, and a member of the 2023 Throw Poetry Collective slam team. She performed at the 1st Accenti Magazine International Festival of the Arts in Italy and is heading to Australia this summer for her first tour.

"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!"
