Wagner College students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in the open mic-poetry reading, headlined by guest poet L. Ash Williams. L. Ash is a native of Brooklyn, NY. She was Host Committee Chair for the 2016 Women of the World Poetry Slam and was a member of the 2013 louderArts National Poetry Slam team. She has most recently been featured at Bowery Poetry, SupaDupaFresh, and Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Her work has been published by the Academy of American Poets (Poem-a-Day) and American Public Media (The Slowdown podcast.) Following the poetry reading, she will be available to answer questions from the audience. She is also interested in your own creative work. If you would like to read your own poetry at the open-mic along with L. Ash, please sign up by emailing Professor Steven Thomas at email@example.com no later than March 12.
