Dexter Garcia

Dexter Garcia

Dexter is an afro-latina poet who explores love and how it intersects with other topics such as family, race, pain, and magic. She prides herself on being a poet who speaks of passion and real-life experiences. She is the author of For Blackmail: A Compilation of Love Poems and has released her first full-length work P.S. I Too Am Magic in early October of 2017. Her newly released book centers mainly around the magic of the black woman and how she spreads it in every facet of her life.

Dexter is very active within the Boston poetry community but never forgets her roots in the small city of Lynn, MA. She has recently run workshops with RAW Artworks’ Spoken Word division. She is developing a series of workshops which, with the help of a few local teachers, she hopes to bring to the Lynn public schools.

Overall Dexter is just a poet who cares a lot about spreading love and living out loud in a way she had never been able to do until she found poetry.
