As well as WRBH’s Poetry contest (which you can read about here!), we will also be spotlight several local poets during the month of April on our Midday Poetry program. Starting this Wednesday at 12:30PM (with a replay on Sunday at 6AM), listen in to hear some of the best New Orleans has to offer. After the episode airs, it will be uploaded onto WRBH’s Soundcloud page. Here’s what’s up for our second week:
- Slam New Orleans (Team SNO 2016)
- Slam New Orleans aka Team SNO is a collective of performance poets, educators, youth workers, activists and students that strive to promote spoken word poetry as a means of artistic expression, community engagement and literacy expansion. Team SNO has attended 4 of the past 5 National Poetry Slam competitions, earning 3 national titles in this short amount of time. We’ll be featuring three of the groups poets: Honey Sanaa, Kataalyst Alcindor and Mwende “FreeQuency” Katwiwa.
To listen to last week’s poets, Mona Lisa Saloy and Peter Cooley, our featured poets from last year or the winners from our first annual poetry contest, check them out on our Soundcloud page below!
