I was proud to represent Providence at the 2011 Women of the World Poetry Slam in Columbus, Ohio. It was my first national competition ever, and I had a blast. So many amazing women poets, everyone from incredible up-and-coming writers to slam legends.

Out of the 72 poets who came from all over the country (plus a few internationals!), I made it into the top twelve and got to compete on Finals Stage at Columbus’s Lincoln Theater. It was exciting to see another badass APIA poet (Jerrica Escoto) there, and to see a fellow Atlantan (Theresa Davis) win the whole thing.
