is a writer, translator and set decorator.
Drawn to drama, film and theater as tools that can prompt intercultural dialogue, she actively explores this approach through creative projects that merge dramatic writing, research, design, translation, and music.
Paloma's most recent projects include Home Language, a multilingual exhibit undertaken under the Dietrich Honors Fellowship Program; and research on Dark Theatre (theatre performed in darkness) with the support of the Jennings Family Brave Companions Fund.
Her most recent poetic play Riqueño premiered at Nuyorican Poets Cafe (2018), supported by a Puffin Foundation grant and a SURF fellowship. Her verse drama, poetry and translations have appeared in Bridge: The Bluffton University Literary Journal, Persephone’s Daughters, and Sampsonia Way.
Paloma holds a Bachelor's in Creative Writing and Drama from Carnegie Mellon.
