On my first slam team

Following Monday's open mic at Mahall's, Lake Effect Poetry hosted a slam to determine the 4th member of their Rustbelt Competition 2015 Rockford IL team. I jumped in for fun and somehow won. If I were a judge, my vote would've gone to Julie Ursem Marchand or Mr. Urban Cowboy Poetry, both of whom gave stellar performances. I'm not as competitive as I used to be, and I've never traveled for a slam before, but this'll be a fun adventure if nothing comes up to keep me from going (one never knows lately). Fingers crossed!

For the latest, follow

  1. The new Lake Effect Poetry 2014 & 2015 Team Anthology was just published by The Poet's Haven. It features work by Jaehla Meacham, Azriel Johnson, Skylark Bruce, AkeemJamal Rollins, Vertigo Xi'an Xavier and me. All proceeds go to send our Lake Effect Poetry team to the Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam (June 19/20 in Rockford, Illinois) and (hopefully) Lake Effect's next team to National Poetry Slam.
