Episode 15 Featuring Your Questions-- Part 1
Welcome to Episode 15 of The Poetry Gods! On this episode of The Poetry Gods, we answer your questions! We had a raucous time answering your questions about what to do when event organizers misidentify you as a slam poet, we talk about our influences as poets and writers, how we try to cultivate joy and love in our communities, talk about gatekeeping and answer a v important question from Safia Elhillo. We had so many questions that we could not answer all of them. Fret not! We will do a part two of this episode where we finish answering your questions in the near future! As always you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Reminder: We are looking to book shows for Fall 2016 & Winter 2017. Bring The Poetry Gods to your campus! We would love to do a live show at your university!
