Liv is a queer spoken word artist and slam poet, dancer, musician, farmer, and activist born and raised in New Paltz, NY. She has been moving up and down the Hudson River ever since, studying at Skidmore College, and settling recently in Troy, NY. Writing and speaking for the last 6 years, her poetry touches on topics of healing self and community, dismantling white supremacist heteropatriarchy, the immaculate beauty of landscape, and radical self love. She currently competes with Albany’s Nitty Gritty Slam Team in competitions across the US. This year she helped the team take first place in the Emily Dickenson Slam in Amherst, MA, the 8th Annual QEW Slam in Buffalo NY, and the WordxWord Women’s Invitational in Pittsfield, MA. She also placed 33rd out of 100 poets at the 2016 Individual World Poetry Slam in Flagstaff, AZ. Apart from (or wildly integrated within) writing and performing poetry, in her free time you may find Liv organizing with local activist groups, swimming, singing with a guitar, mountain climbing, having conversations with the moon, and playing old time fiddle music.
