SASHA BONÉT

Sasha Bonét is a writer, critic, and educator living in New York City. While employing various mediums for storytelling, Bonét’s work explores the ways in which race, gender, and art influence cultural norms and the ways we experience them. With an anthropological approach, Bonét shifts from criticism to profiles to poetry with one objective in mind, to illuminate the nuances of humanity. Bonét is currently at work on a collection of non-fiction narrative essays on Memory + Motherhood in America. She studied at Columbia University's creative writing MFA program. She currently teaches as an assistant professor at Columbia University’s School of the Arts, Barnard’s English department, and part-time at The New School’s Parsons School of Design photography BFA department.
