About our Feature:

Erica “Rivaflowz” Buddington is an author and arts educator based in Brooklyn, New York. Buddington writes fiction and memoir that elaborates the experience of the millennial woman of color. She’s written/published three books: (Intention, Boroughs Apart, and Of Micah and Men). She’s an HBO Def Poet, poetry slam champion, and content & arts education strategist for bloggers/writers/companies.

Buddington is a career educator. She left her post as Director of TRUCE Media and Arts at Harlem Children’s Zone to design and found a creative writing & coding non-profit for young men of color that debuts Summer 2017.

(She’s also a comic book, Harry Potter obsessed, HTML/CSS coding techie, but we’ll delve into that another time.)

You can find Erica on the cusp of Brooklyn’s gentrification, in a quaint home office, spilling over with journals. She’s working on her fourth book, about her family’s homeland.
