FEATURING: SHELBY BIRCH

Shelby Birch dares to unapologetically tell her story through anthological spoken word pieces of identity and love.  Lit is a lens into the discourse of questions on womanhood, blackness, awkwardness, and heartbreak—all that encompasses her own intersectionality and worldview. Candidly conveyed, each unique piece reflects her life’s journey as she bumbles along the path from youth into adulthood. Lit enlightens. Lit lingers. Get lit, with Lit.

Shelby Birch is an Orlando native and a proud alumna of the University of Central Florida. She's been writing and performing her poetry for nearly a decade across the U.S. She has competed in local and international competitions such as College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, Southern Fried and Brave New Voices. Shelby is also the co-founder of Project: SPIT, UCF's spokenword student organization.
