The Loft's spoken word series, Equilibrium, continues with Spoken Word Immersion Fellow Cindy Tran and special guest Paul Tran.

Cindy Tran holds a degree in English Literature from UCLA. She is a 2017 Brooklyn Poets Fellow. In her free time, she writes Yelp reviews, hoping that someone will look for a pork sandwich and find a poem about sandwiches and racism.

Paul Tran is a Pushcart Prize & Best of the Net-nominated poet. Their work appears in Prairie Schooner, The Cortland Review, RHINO, which gave them an Editor's Prize, & elsewhere. They are the first Asian American in twenty years to represent the Nuyorican Poets Cafe at the National Poetry Slam & Individual World Poetry Slam, where they placed Top 10. They received fellowships & residencies from Kundiman, Poets House, Lambda Literary Foundation, Napa Valley Writers Conference, Home School Miami, Vermont Studio Center, The Conversation, & Palm Beach Poetry Festival. Paul lives in Brooklyn, where they serve as Poetry Editor at The Offing & Poet In Residence at Urban Word NYC.
