He was a featured poet for the St. Mark’s Poetry Project in 1997. He currently hosts The 4 Horsemen Reading at The Cornelia Street Cafe in New York City and lives in New Jersey.
Cynthia Toronto is recognized as a forerunner of cutting-edge spoken word performance. Since the early ’80s she’s pioneered a form combining elements of poetry, music, theater and media portraying unique glimpses of urban life or any subject relevant to humans. She has penned eight books of poetry, including work in several anthologies, most recently Token Entry: New York City Subway Poems by Smalls Books and Three Room Press’ Maintenant 5 & 6, Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing & Art, and currently teaches acting and speech at City College of NewYork and Hostos Community College.
