Read full description of the books:
Beginning at loss and ending in reflective elation, Floating, Brilliant, Gone moves steadily through the many complicated textures of identity, anxiety, and absence. Using a language that is as volatile as the world it tries to occupy, these poems read like lucid dreams that jolt awake at the most unexpected moments. Like a ghost speaking from the ruins of memory, Choi's electrifying debut is at once fiercely imaginative and eerily familiar.

Read information about the authorFranny Choi’s poetry explores the collisions of identities, the volatile nature of language, and the haunting relationship between an artist’s body & her body of work.
She is one of the few people to have been a finalist at the three biggest adult poetry slams in the country: the National Poetry Slam, the Individual World Poetry Slam, and the Women of the World Poetry Slam. She was also the top-ranking female poet at the 2011 Southern Fried Poetry Slam and the champion of 2010 Seoul Poetry Slam.
Franny’s first full-length collection of poems, Floating, Brilliant, Gone, will be released on Write Bloody Publishing in March 2014. Her literary work has appeared or is forthcoming in Poetry, PANK, Fringe, Radius, Gesture, Apogee, Flicker and Spark: A Contemporary Queer Anthology of Spoken Word and Poetry, and Courage: Daring Poems for Gutsy Girls. Her work in Fringe was nominated for a Pushcart Prize and a Sundress Best of the Net Award in 2011.
In 2011, her play, Mask Dances, was produced at the historic Rites and Reason Theater as part of the Writing Is Live Festival. Telling the story of the young South Korean organizers who led the Kwangju Uprising in 1980, the play became the festival’s first undergraduate production.
Franny has lectured and performed at a wide variety of readings, schools, and conferences across the country, including TEDxBoston, the Boston Asian American Students Inter-Collegiate Coalition, the College Union Poetry Slam Invitational, the Jubilee Arts Festival, and many others. An arts mentor with a background in youth organizing, she is closely involved in the local grassroots organizing movement.
