Bao Phi on March 23rd

This month’s Teen Voices workshop is finally here: Wednesday, March 23, 4:15-6:30 PM at Mugby Junction on Huff Street, featuring special guest Bao Phi.

What to bring: writing supplies/devices, drafts in process, and something to read out loud.

Bao Phi creates poems that are equally compelling read on the page or performed out loud. He is a two-time Minnesota Grand Slam champion and a National Poetry Slam finalist, and appeared on the HBO series Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry. His first book, Sông I Sing, was published by Coffee House Press in 2011.

We are very lucky to have Bao join us, and are hoping for a good turnout. If you haven’t been able to attend regularly, that’s OK–you’re still very welcome! Please get to Mugby early enough to get your order filled and be ready to start by 4:30.
