Taylor Mali


Author-poet Taylor Mali is one of the few genuine celebrities to emerge from the competitive slam-poetry scene. He is perhaps best known for the poem “What Teachers Make,” a question he expanded upon in his bestselling book, “What Teachers Make: In Praise of the Greatest Job in the World.”

Mali appeared in the documentaries “SlamNation” (1997) and “Slam Planet” (2006). He was also in the HBO production, “Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry,” which won a Peabody Award in 2003.

Mali’s incisive work, which spares no one, especially himself, is often about family, masculinity, marriage, divorce, fatherhood, race, and education. It’s also mostly funny. His brand-new chapbook, “The Whetting Stone,” is a brutally honest and heartbreaking examination of love, loss, depression, suicide – and the will to live.

A former Berkshirite who still has close ties to the greater region, Mali now calls Brooklyn home.
