Nabila Lovelace, Creative Writer

Nabila Lovelace is a born and raised Queens native, as well as a first generation American. Her parents hail from Trinidad and Tobago and Nigeria. She is a recent graduate of Emory University, finalist for the Emerge-Be-Surface fellowship 2014, and a winner of the 2013 Poets & Writers Amy Award. Her work has been published in Washington Square Review, Northeast Narrative & the Winter Tangerine Hands Up Don’t Shoot edition. She recently moved back to her first lands of Queens. In her spare time she enjoys the warm weather by doing hoodrat things with her friends.


“In the TATIP program I am on the advanced track. Through the program I was able to complete a short residency at the Young Women’s Leadership Academy in my home town of Queens with Jennifer Michael Hect as my mentor. I thank TATIP for the many seminars I was able to attend, especially those that catered to teaching social justice in the classroom.”
