CGAA Miscellaneous: Poetry Slam

Three incredible poems read/written by three incredible women. I share because I want to, one day, to use animation to make their words more accessible to everyone. Obviously, so much more powerful to watch them perform but it would bring people back to poetry and seeking to watch it live. I think people steer away because their experience is hard sentences in a book and fighting to figure out the meaning. Most poems are written to be performed making it's meaning clearer through body language and voice. It will be interesting to take that into animation somehow.

Katie Makkai - Pretty

T. Miller - Us, Black Women

Lily Myers - Shrinking Women
