VIRTUAL - Words Out Loud: A Spoken Word Series

PLEASE NOTE - FOR JULY, THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE SECOND FRIDAY OF THE MONTH!

Friday, July 10, 2020, 7:30 pm

Presenter: Words Out Loud

Contact Email: philipwexler@msn.com

Contact Phone: 240-899-6514

 


 

Please join Words Out Loud, A Spoken Word Series, as they take their monthly event virtually via Zoom!  

 

July's event features Omowale Jesse Alexander and Stilly

 

Alexander, a performance poet, Afrofuturist, micro-publisher, electrical engineer, and finalist in the 1999 Paterson Literary Review’s Allen Ginsberg Poetry contest.  He has been featured at the Davies Memorial Unitarian Universalist Church’s annual poetry service, Knitting Factory, Groove Drops, and the Sumei Multidisciplinary Center, and his work has appeared in Obsidian III: Literature in the African Diaspora, Sojourners Magazine, The Drumming Between Us: Black Love & Erotic Poetry, and Drumvoices Revue: A Confluence of Literary, Cultural & Vision Arts.

 

Stilly is an Iffley based Yorkshire (UK) poet and illustrator, who would like to think of himself as a unique combination of Edward Gorey and Marriott Edgar, who was adopted by Rod Serling and Stanley Holloway.  He finds Zoom a massive relief from having to carry a screen and projector around to local poetry groups. When not working on his allotment he draws, writes and performs his poems but never in that order.
