A Word with Lucien Zell

Poet in residence

Welcome fellow poets and those interested in this most noble art. On this page of Poetry, we will introduce you to new poets, advice about writing your own poetry and details of events and competitions specifically geared towards the poetic community.

Let me be your guide.  

Born in LA, raised in Seattle, Lucien Zell lives in Prague. His writing has appeared in The New Orleans Review, Tikkun, Poetry Salzburg Review, and will appear in three upcoming anthologies. His first American book of poetry, Tiny Kites, was published in 2019. A professional singer-songwriter, Zell’s folk/rock album Fall into Flight is available on iTunes and Spotify. Carnival of Shades, a classical piece for which he composed the libretto, premiered last November at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
