Welp. Free Verse is over.
I’m proud that this festival accomplished what I wanted it to: amplify voices that needed to be heard while spreading poetry across the city.
I couldn’t have done it without your support. Much love to SC Humanities, the South Carolina Arts Commission and the Charleston Visitors Bureau. And the sponsors: the Cooper School, Pure Theatre, MOJA Arts Festival, the SchoolHouse, Enough Pie and Charleston Moves.
A personal thank you to goes to Matt Foley, Derek Berry and Scott Watson, from the Office of Cultural Affairs.
What about the photos?
I got you. ALL OF THE THINGS ARE HERE. Yes. Exclusive video + photos of the whole festival. ENJOY. Seriously. CLICK HERE.
The work of Free Verse will continue through The Unspoken Word, as well as my personal travels. I’ve got plenty of school visits and workshops on the schedule. And a MAJOR project to announce at the beginning of the year. Stay tuned?
