with Caroline Harvey

Experience the electrifying and liberating art of spoken word (sometimes called slam or performance poetry): where powerful personal healing meets excellent literary craft. Born in 1986 in a Speak Easy in Chicago and currently sweeping the world’s theater and art scenes, spoken word is a high energy, no-holds-barred performance art that addresses edgy, vulnerable topics. The range of writing styles can span from hip-hop to prose, punk rock to comedy to monologue and beyond, and no previous experience is necessary.
