Jillian Montilla is Our Special Guest at SpokenWord Paris June 13th! Monday’s Theme: ROOM

Up until two weeks ago, Jillian Montilla (elle/she/her) was a part-time poet and a full-time master’s student in human rights at the Paris School of International Affairs. She’s still a part-time poet, but now she’s just unemployed. In 2020, Jill was named the U.N. Women Spoken Word Youth Poet. Partaking in the age-old tradition of poetry and activism, she has taught workshops on spoken word to migrant women’s groups and performed her poetry for the United Nations and international feminist organizations. Her poetry and essays, which unpack her Filipinx-American identity, have been published in textbooks and independent youth journals and magazines.
