Our second slam of the season! After our successful kick-off, we are ready to continue the momentum. This month we have a special feature from local legend Maya Asher, and we have a new addition to our event: last month’s winner will be given a spotlight performance to showcase their poetry. Come one, come all!
SATURDAY OCTOBER 19TH!
SLAM WORKSHOP & Volunteer Meeting 5:00-6:30pm
Led by MAYA ASHER!
POETRY SLAM: 7:00-9:30pm, signup at 6:30
Hosted by ARACELI MONTAÑO & ENRIQUE GARCÍA!
Featured poet: MAYA ASHER!
Spotlight poet: KIYA D!
She is so close to finishing her first manuscript of poetry,
it hurts. She is currently combining her experience as a
behaviorist and therapist with her experience as a writer
to develop programming for therapeutic writing.
She believes writing and the arts are far beyond
extra curricular, but a necessity for our social, emotional,
intellectual, and spiritual growth.
