This month at Poetry in Motion, we have a very special guest poet all the way from New York City!

Emily Weitzman is currently on what I think many of us what call a dream mission - travelling the world on a fellowship to learn about different slam poetry communities! She is a veteran of the college slam scene in the US and has a bunch of awards to her name. Don't miss this exciting international performance!

We will also be holding our usual open mic to begin with, all are welcome to read or perform, original or covered material!

Emily Weitzman writes artichokes and eats poems. Raised in New York, she recently graduated from Wesleyan University, where she majored in English and dance. As a competitor and coach, she was a four-year member of the Wesleyan University slam poetry team. The team won numerous awards, including "Best Writing" at the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) in 2012, and Emily won individual awards such as "Best Female Poet" (Yale Regionals 2012), "Funniest Poet" (CUPSI 2012), and "Best Persona Poem" (CUPSI 2011). Emily is currently traveling the world for a year on a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, hoping to learn about communities and cultures by exploring spoken word scenes across the globe.
