Lashon Daley has been writing since her fatherâ€™s death when she was young. After earning her MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, Daley lived in New Orleans for several years, working for the nonprofit Phoenix of New Orleans as an AmeriCorps member. During that time, Daley discovered the joys of performing as a storyteller, sparking her interest in folklore and the stories we tell. After her motherâ€™s subsequent death, Daley found that the spoken word evoked the part of her mother that lived on in her: her voice, her face, the movements of her hands.
Daleyâ€™s passion has continued to fuel her work as a writer, especially of childrenâ€™s literature and poetry. She is a 2014 Callaloo Fellow and a UC Berkeley Distinguished Graduate Fellow, where she is working towards her MA in folklore. Daleyâ€™s work has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine; Country Roads magazine; and Underwater New York. An active performer, Daley makes her home in Berkeley, California.
