About the speaker

Andria Nacina Cole was raised in a house full of women and learned everything worth knowing about storytelling from their mouths. Lots of practice and careful study supplemented (a wee bit) by degrees in creative writing from Morgan State and Johns Hopkins Universities have helped her land short stories in Hamilton Stone Review, The Feminist Wire, Fiction Circus and Ploughshares, among others. Andria is the recipient of several Maryland State Arts Council awards, a Rubys Grants awardee and Baker Artist Awards finalist. In 2017, Baltimore City Paper named her Best Storyteller. She is co-founder and director of the critical reading and writing program A Revolutionary Summer, which exposes Black girls to Black women literary and artistic giants in an effort to push them headfirst into self-love.
