MiMi Zannino


Artist Overview

MiMi Zannino brings literature and history to life in her colorful, energetic role as American poet, Emily Dickinson. Her theatrical monologue is accessible and models skills for research, writing and speaking. Students question her about process and performance to help them become effective writers and communicators. MiMi Zannino performs throughout the Mid-Atlantic region in the solo show she researched and wrote: Time-Travel with Emily Dickinson. As a 2014 Chautauqua scholar/actor, she engaged audiences from Garrett County to Talbot County for the Maryland Humanities Council living history performance series. She has three certificates from the Teaching Artist Institute, and holds degrees from The Johns Hopkins University and Towson University. MiMi has worked with thousands of students and teachers as a poet-in-residence through the Maryland State Arts Council, helping young writers publish anthologies and practice speaking skills. She is a former Maryland Coordinator for the Poetry Out Loud national recitation program and coached high school students in preparation for the contests. Photo credit: Alan Cutler
