CUPSI Season

I have competed in the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) for three years in my undergrad. Now, this year, I'll be a coach!

I am honored to be coaching my alma mater East Carolina University's slam team: Word of Mouth. From left to right, meet Noah, Nykaysia, Janessa, Stephanie, and Sakinah as the official 2018 slam team.

From April 4th to April 7th, CUPSI will take place at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It will be great to not only see the poets I'm coaching perform, but to meet old poets and new poets performing as well.

Wish us luck!
