Through The Glass Darkly

Marty McConnell performs “Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell”


In honor of National Poetry month I have decided Re-blog one (or more) WordPress (or other) poets a day.  I am not very good with rules.  So with that in mind I would like to introduce you to an other.  I recently attended a slam poetry workshop at Notre Dame University taught by Marty McConnel.  It was incredible and inspiring.  She spoke about the poetry and the performance.  I really had never realized how much was going on in the Slam world.  This was one of those moments when I thought, “YES, YES, YES, … I LOVE THIS.”   So In honor of National Poetry month and 6 year olds everywhere who change the rules to the game on a dime, I would like to show you a video of a poet every day in April, starting with the very dynamic Marty McConnell.  Please check out her incredible Bio at her website.  The workshop I attended was free, and she may be coming to venue near you.  If she does, GO, you will not be disappointed.
