Nine great teen poets competed on Broad Street, and a poet friend of mine Sasset West won. Hopefully, she might join the Young Artists for Change showcase line-up. More info on that showcase coming soon.
Why I really wanted to make it down to Augusta was to meet Jon Goode, a Def Jam Poet from HBO. I’ve heard a few of his poems and am a fan. He is currently touring, performing tonight at Mahogany Lounge. It was quite cool, him knowing loads of poets that I really admire. This is all very exciting news for me, anyways. Was an exciting day. I’ll share with you, before I go, one of Goode’s poems.
