As you guys know, this is my second year being on the team, so I’ve seen my share of VIP slams. I have to say, what our feature Ashe Vernon and Jordan Hamilton did, I haven’t seen before. They have a poetry performance called "The Boatman", with the two of them and one local person from whatever city they’re in (this time it was me) and it combines poetry with performance art. This feature was awe...

This Saturday, Houston VIP had our Grand Slam competition for all the poets who had amassed the most points throughout the slam season. Seven poets competed for a spot to make the team, which will go to national competition.

This Saturday, at Rice University, Houston V.I.P. performed at a TEDx talk themed (Un)Common Knowledge. The event was focused on examining commonly held beliefs, and exploring them more deeply. Houston V.I.P.’s performance was titled (In)Visible Diseases, focusing on the illnesses that plague everyday people like ourselves, which are not necessarily visible to the naked eye.

Our performance was int...

Each poet carried their words with such responsibility. Every performance whether it be “If Cars Could Talk” by...

This was absolutely my favorite slam of the year. Okay, it was our only slam in 2017 so far, but can you blame me?! I really enjoy being a member of this slam team, but last night showed me that the reach of Houston VIP extends beyond the team, beyond slam, into a beautiful city full of artists who want to share their work. We had our Women of the World Slam Qualifier, and we boasted more competit...

It was yet another intense, emotional, heartwarming, packed-house show at Houston V.I.P. Slam! And this month we were gathered to celebrate not only the poetry, but also, our V.I.P. community. We wished a very happy birthday to Desmond Jones, our social media coordinator and great friend. Houston V.I.P. would not be what it is today without Desmond’s years of selfless commitment to growing our org...

We meet again. Or in my case, we met for the first time. I'm so glad they chose me to write this post because seeing the National Poetry Slam through rookie eyes was something to behold. As far as the week goes, there were amazing workshops, awesome competitions and poetry coming at us from every direction. My personal favorites were Slam 101 with Ed Mabrey and the Nerd Slam, which required you to...
