Marcel Fable Price 

...Is a multi-hyphenate, self-directed creative whose primary medium is stranded somewhere between oratory expression and creative writing. 


Fable is the 2016 recipient of a Community Advocate Award, 2017 40 Under 40 Honoree, was the 2017-2020 Poet Laureate of Grand Rapids, MI, a 2020 Grand Rapids area Black Businesses “Black Bottom Community Builder” Award winner, 2021 Michigan Humanities Impact Partner of the Year, 2022 Newsmaker of the Year, and was given the “Imagination Award” by the West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology. 

His work is a kaleidoscope of personal experiences, crafted into stained glass examples of transformation desired to connect with readers in a painstakingly beautiful way regardless of their own lived experience. Fable truly believes the mortar to our humanity is shared experience and without intentionally searching for ways to connect, our individual gospels will only remain surface hymns. 

His work has previously been used by PBS, The Frey Foundation, Mental Health America, and Habitat for Humanity. He has graced the cover of Grand Rapids Magazine, and his poems have appeared in The Missouri Review, Button Poetry, and Write About Now.
