Rock Canyon Poets presents Taylor Fang

Jun 9, 2020, 6:30 pm

Join Rock Canyon Poets for an electric evening with Taylor Fang.

Taylor Fang is a junior at Logan High School. She believes in poetry’s power to create empathy and solidarity in communities of all backgrounds. As a second-generation Chinese-American, her work often explores topics of migration, girlhood, and transition. Her poetry has been featured in The New York Times and recognized by the Hippocrates Young Poet’s Prize and the Poetry Society UK. Taylor works to spread her love of language through serving as founder and president of her high school creative writing club, and as editor-in-chief of its previously long-dormant literary magazine. Last year, she directed an afterschool poetry workshop for International Poetry Day at a local elementary school and read original poetry on Utah Public Radio. Taylor is also an alumnus of the Telluride Association Sophomore Seminar at the University of Michigan, where she spent six weeks studying the narrative representations of marginalized groups. When not writing, Taylor can be found at debate tournaments, reading, or exploring the beautiful Utah outdoors.

This event is supported by Rock Canyon Poets and Utah Humanities.
