I learned a lot this week, and I’m so grateful for all my educators, intended and not. It’s been remarkable watching NPS change as a sometimes visitor over the years. Baltimore, a slam once run by two (wonderful) white men, is now a thoroughly chocolate team. Boston (proper) sends its first team ever, and wins the whole thing, adapting to awful sound in a gorgeous space. All over, you can hear new kinds of voices emerging.
Every time, poets, its my most profound honor. And if you’re wondering, why yes, I do write poems. A lot of them.

Whats up Adam? I would love to get some of the pics you took of the Marquis Slam to post on FB and my Website
Please use this handy form and tell me which ones you’re interested in (I’m not sure which poets are on the Marquis Slam). Thanks!
Did you see the ones posted about? They are pretty awesome.
The pictures are amazing. Thank you for capturing so many of the #MagicMoments from NPS. You are so talented!
Thank you so much, Inkera! It means extra-extra coming from you. 🙂
