I am honored to announce that I have been selected as a recipient of the Greater Columbus Arts Council's "Funds for Artists" grant for 2023. I am excited to utilize this award to generate more creative works - including handbound chapbooks and zines - and to expand and deepen my voice work and readings. Many more projects lay on the horizon, but for now I will simply offer a huge thank you to the Greater Columbus Arts Council for prioritizing the arts, emerging artists, and the community at large.
Round 2 of grant applications are currently open, so if you are a creative, I highly encourage you to apply!
We need your art. The world needs your art.
TAKE THIS WITH YOU
TAKE THIS WITH YOU, published Summer 2022, is Lashonda Love's debut poetry collection. Currently available in paperback and digitally as a Kindle exclusive. Audiobook version upcoming.
"TAKE THIS WITH YOU offers a cutting and concise journey through love, loss, pain, and sorrow. At the heart of each poem lies the discovery of, and longing for, a sense of self after trauma."

The Wonder of Women
Right Beneath the Glass Ceiling
*Right Beneath the Glass Ceiling and The Wonder of Women, were publications created by a network of artists and writers across the globe. The work of compiling and preparing each anthology was spearheaded by creators on the collaborator space at Daisie.com. That space and the archives of both publications have since been deleted from Daisie's servers, effectively destroying the ability of creators to locate each other and the final works. I am working diligently to acquire print or digital copies of both anthologies.
