Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta, Mazza Writer in Residence
A Nicaraguan Californian via Mexico raised in the Huntington Park and Highland Park neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta lives in a rent-controlled apartment in the Mission District of San Francisco. Luboviski-Acosta is an artist, writer, reproductive justice activist, patient advocate and lapsed full spectrum doula who supports themself through working at a neighborhood cafe and cleaning houses. Their work attempts, as fellow poet Lauren Levin writes, to “include direct revolutionary action, up to and including revolutionary violence, as part of a continuum of care, and their use of this redefinition of care-work to rethink gendered paradigms.”
Mazza Writer in Residence
The Mazza Writer in Residence program allows Luboviski-Acosta to work with students of poetry, drama and other studies, and present performances both on and off the San Francisco State campus, with intensive student and community involvement. The residency pairs classroom workshop situations aimed at students, with performances open to the general public.
