A student of the Unconscious, her poetry and sketches often stem from dreams and nightmares. As a visual artist she enjoys creating live pen and ink sketches to live poetry, and has done so at events with 3Po3try NYC, Deep Tanks Studios, Post:blank magazine, NYSAI magazine, and Lumen. Maria Chisolm worked with the late Adolph Caesar with her poetry and actor/play write, Paul Benjamin who both were a big inspiration to her and for her. She has read twice at The Ensemble Theater in New York. She participated in the Los Vegas 20th Anniversary and Symposium Poetry Contest for The International Library of Poetry. She won a poetry contest at the Queens Borough Public Library and has read some of her work on Hugh Hamilton’s Talk Back Radio Show. She has also read at The Drama Book Shop twice in Potpourri, a show directed by Melissa Maxwell. Maria is in several Anthology Books and was in Essence Magazine. Maria currently has a poetry book out called Sudan’s A
