WRITER.  POET.  ARTIST.

Lucy Torres is a writer, poet, artist and activist based in NYC.  A native of Queens and first-generation Chilean American, Lucy has been an architect of literary worlds since the age of nine.  From her college reporter days interviewing Antonio Banderas and Francine Prose to having her own fictitious humor advice column, Lucy’s first love has always been the creative writing field.  As an endometriosis sufferer, Lucy is an unwavering women’s rights activist, fighter of self-love and advocate for gender/racial/ability/class/age/body size equality.


Lucy is Project Manager at Artrepreneurship, a Brooklyn based non-profit focused on serving underdeveloped communities through social entrepreneurship and education. She spends her time working on her art and enjoying life with friends and family.
