February 27: Skoot Makes his Mark at Stone Soup Poetry
Skoot has been a steady presence at Stone Soup and the rest of the poetry scene for quite a while. He's been an especially strong presence a the recent SOUP'ed up Slam events at The Dudley Cafe, which finally convinced me to ask him to feature. I am thrilled that he accepted. It's likely that most of you have only heard Skoot for three minutes at a time. Be at Stone Soup on February 27 to see him do the full feature I know he can do.
The SOUP'ed Up Poetry Slam is Bigger and Blacker for March
The Society of Urban Poetry feels that Black History Month should have an extension this year, and who are we to argue? Be in the audience for the SOUP'ed Up Poetry Slam on Tuesday, March 7 at the Dudley Cafe. Enter the slam for a chance to win a $100 cash prize. Say hi to me, as I'll be in the back keeping time and score.
March 13: The Release Party and Slam for The Elephant Magazine
I am a big supporter of Jamilla VanDyke-Bailey and her literary magazine, The Elephant. I've appeared in their online version of the zine and read at the release party for the print version of the second issue. Now the third issue has been released with the theme "Brown Face, White Space." The release party for this issue will be at Stone Soup on March 13. This will include a poetry slam with substantial cash prizes. I hope you come by, whether it's to compete, read on the open mic, or just to pick up a copy of this important collection.
