Name: Malcolm Friend

Hometown: Seattle, WA

Bio: I joined the Visible Poetry Project because I'm interested in the different ways a poem can come to life. Poems are stereotypically thought of as things that exist solely on the page/in books, but I'm interested in how what's on the page can be translated and how poetry can interact with other forms of art and expression.

Fun Fact: I actually started out as a fiction writer, and wanted to write short stories. I didn't defect to the dark side until the end of my junior year of college.

Favorite Poem: "asimilao" by Tato Laviera
