Tyauna Bruce

“She has a way with words…”

I'm a creative professional who lives and works in the Washington, D.C. area. My language artistry blooms in the interconnected media of education, training, writing, and coaching. Directly put, I’m a teacher, facilitator, author, and storyteller. With 20 years of secondary education in my background, I have helped students seize multifaceted opportunities that only effective, well-crafted language could present. Personally, I’m also a “vivrant thing.” I write poetry and essays, perform spoken word, and enjoy listening to and analyzing Hip Hop music. I enjoy binge-watching documentaries and dramas that make me shout things at the television and I STILL watch The Simpsons. Audiobooks have changed the reading game for me, but I still love to turn a page whenever I can. My ultimate goal is to make Black literary canon on the shelf next to James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, and bell hooks. (I know it’s lofty, but I’m up for the challenge!)
