Speak Your Piece: WeSlam Valentine’s Edition

Speak Your Piece: killin’ two birds with one epic episode that is neither “cloyingly sweet” nor “clichéd”:

This week we are pleased to feature poems recorded live at  WeSlam’s first poetry slam of the semester, at Wesleyan’s Malcolm X House on February 3.  The poets on this night must have felt Valentine’s Day coming, because many of the poems performed talked about love and relationships.  So we’re offering a Valentine’s Day show, but one we hope won’t be cloyingly sweet or cliched.

This episode features poets Ted Bularzik ’12, Solomon Billinkoff ’14, Morgan Hill ’14, Megan Cash ’14, Zach Rosen ’11, and Hadas Werman ’14.


New Speak Your Piece

Via Dan Levine ’11:

This week’s episode features poems by two incredible student poets who approach poetry from very different styles.

Audrey McGlinchy ’11 starts, reading several poems from a project set across Ireland which explore the significance of person and place.  Then, Nate Mondshein ’12 reads deeply biographical slam-styled poems.
