As a writer, editor, and advocate, Carlyn J. Worthy uses both her fiction and non-fiction work to explore race, gender, community, inequality, womanism, and mysticism in historical and futuristic spaces.
Carlyn is a graduate of Loyola University New Orleans, where she studied visual arts, Journalism and Sociology. Along with cooking, her passion for photography developed in the city she called home for seven years. It was during her last two years in New Orleans that she grew the most as a community builder and advocate.
Currently residing just outside of New York, Carlyn is working on Afrofuturist fiction work for the upcoming BLACK FOOD anthology–a qualitative research project slated for publication in late 2015.
