Cecily Schuler is a genderqueer writer, performer and teaching artist currently based in Brooklyn, NY. They repped Seattle Poetry Slam in 2014, coached Union Square Slam’s inaugural team in 2016, and are the 2016 Vox Pop Individual Slam Champion. Their work is featured in the Offing, great weather for MEDIA, Duende and elsewhere. They founded and currently run Union Square Slam, happening every Tuesday in the heart of New York City. Since receiving an MFA in Writing of the Pratt Institute, they’ve been working on a full-length experimental poetic memoir. Cecily is a quintuple Leo, a closet punk-ska rocker, and habitually relocates every time a sportball team in their current city breaks a longstanding curse to win some big deal trophy.
