Not bragging, just sharing:

From Michon Boston, then Project Director of The Big Read:

“From the moment we selected F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby for D.C.‘s 2008 Big Read city read, I called Abdul Ali.  As project director, I knew our promotion would need an introduction by a writer with the instincts and substance to make the connections for city readers who could otherwise dismiss the book for having no relevance or connection with their lives.  Abdul provided a mirror.”


From Elizabeth Bruce, Co-Director, The Performing Knowledge Project of Sanctuary Theatre + Community Arts Producer, CentroNía

“Abdul Ali is a fabulous facilitator!  In leading one of the Performing Knowledge Project’s Writers on the Green Line Intergenerational Writing Workshop at CentroNía, Ali combined inventive, engaging writing prompts with a warm and collegial manner that enveloped all of the participants in a productive, literary camaraderie.  He is a consummate professional, both thoughtful in his conceptualization and thorough in his development and implementation. Ali has built an extensive and diverse literary network and enjoys keen respect within the artistic and educational communities. Indeed, Knowledge is delighted to feature Abdul Ali as a Presenting Poet at our series PERFORMETRY: Old Poems, New Poems, Your Poems at BloomBars, which–like our Green Line Project–is supported by both Poets & Writers, Inc., and the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities.  We look forward to continued literary fellowship with poet and educator Abdul Ali.”
