Hey Y’all! In August my squad, Team Slam New Orleans, won the 2013 National Poetry Slam for the second year in a row.  I posted about it over on my Tumblr, but I forgot to mention it on this page.  You can check out all of the incredible NPS finals action here:

I am so proud of my teammates (A Scribe Called Quess?, Kaycee Filson, Sam Gordon and Akeem Martin) for working so hard all year and shining all week. Cheers to all the poets, volunteers and audience members for making the 2013 National Poetry Slam in Boston/Cambridge/Somerville so darn amazing.

My friend Robert Warren popped into the Pop Up Volume 2 and brought his camera.  Check out these great shots he snapped, and be sure to head to his photo blog (aphorist.tumblr.com) for beautiful photos taken all around New Orleans.
