IWPS! Archipelago! March Tour!

Posted by on Feb 10 2013, in Uncategorized

Some highlights of the past few months:

  • Went to my very first Individual World Poetry Slam in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and advanced to finals! (Thank goodness for Sam Sax and Cam Awkward-Rich, who kept me grounded & sane the whole time.)
  • Featured at Washington University in St. Louis, which is probably the hypest slam scene I have ever seen, ever.
  • Performed at Brown University’s gorgeous Granoff Center with the Archipelago Poetry Project (with cast members Jared Paul, Aaron Samuels, Laura Brown-Lavoie).
  • Gave a talk at the Boston Asian American Student Conference.
  • Featured at Wesleyan University, which was probably the most energy I have ever seen in a room, ever.

Now, mostly just grinding away to coordinate ProvSlam Youth (our last show was PACKED!) and gearing up for a March tour of the Northeast with Fatimah Asghar. More on the way!
