Taylor Mali is the author most recently of Bouquet of Red Flags (Write Bloddy Books 2014), a poetic celebration of "a marriage I did not yet realize was over."

Formerly president of Poetry Slam, Inc., the non-profit organization that oversees all poetry slams in North America, Taylor Mali makes his living entirely as a spoken-word and voiceover artist, traveling around the country, performing, teaching workshops, and doing occasional comercial voiceover work.
