Meriam Rodriguez

Born in New York City, MERIAM RODRIGUEZ is an activist, writer, poet, performer, humanitarian and self-proclaimed revolutionary. She has been a member of The NYC Latina Writer’s Group since 2010. Rodriguez has performed at State and City Colleges throughout the country with Latino Flavored Productions in the plays Jose Can Speak and Pink: The Chronicles of BC Jenny. She was a co-writer, co-producer and one of five performers in the highly successful production of Soledad Speaks: A Spoken Word Journey in October 2013, for Latino Heritage Month. She was also part of the workshop production of I Was Born; a one woman play written by Alicia Anabel Santos.

She is working on edits for “When She Was My King;” the follow-up to her début novel, and on the blueprint for her third work titled, “Chocolate Saved My Life.”
