It’s definitely not enough to just know the rules, get a samplin’, hear the introduction…so I’m going to take you inside my first Beltway Poetry Slam with the following videos. These are the artists in the order in which they appeared.
Major thanks to Sarah Lawson for putting this together. And of course thanks to Natalie E. Illum, Regie Cabico, Gray, Slangston Hughes, Da One and Only, Angelique Palmer, Pages, Jonathan B. Tucker, Joseph LMS, Bryce Celotto, Von Da Wizard, and Danny Fox-Moles for showing up and sharing their art, their words and their stories with us. Special congratulations to the finalists Joseph LMS and Jonathan B. Tucker. And a special shout out to Danny Fox-Moles for securing the win. As always, thanks to the Fridge for hosting yet another amazing event.
