Monalisa Malone

Monalisa Malone

MONALISA MAIONE is a two-time Pushcart nominated feminist poet living between California and Paris, France. Her poems often tackle the nature of power and control of institutions, both political and sociological on individuals and the natural world. She tends to explore a precise idea using clean imagery and sharp language to expose a side of common life that is often taken for granted. Her poems, interviews and voice are found in 30 Years of the SLO Poetry Festival, Miller Street Memories, The Long Islander, I Let Go of the Stars in My Hand, Cultural Weekly L.A., The Fem, The Rogue Voice, South Florida Poetry Journal, and others. She is an accomplished reader, having appeared in major venues and festivals in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, San Luis Obispo, Paris and recently, at the prestigious Tanta International Poetry Festival in Egypt where her poems were beautifully translated into Arabic. Monalisa lives with a brain injury, which informs her life and work in difficult, beautiful and mysterious ways. Poetry is her constant companion.
