Frohman (she/her) writes and performs poetry that centers cultural preservation, particularly that of her Puerto Rican heritage and queer communities. Inspired by the Nuyorican literary tradition and what she describes as the “communal alchemy of gathering,” Frohman frequently performs her narrative and rhythmic poetry aloud to create intimate connections with audiences. “I view poetry as an embodied act, meaning language is physical,” she says. A past Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion, she has performed at venues including the White House, Brooklyn Museum, El Museo del Barrio, MoMA PS1, Apollo Theater, and Whitney Museum of American Art. Her writing has appeared in publications including The New York Times, The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNext, and Nepantla: An Anthology Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color. Frohman has received Fellowships from Baldwin for the Arts and Headlands Center for the Arts, among other awards. She earned an MS in education from Drexel University and a BA in English from Dowling College.
