Dallas Poetry Project
Dallas Poetry Project: Featuring Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre and Awaji Johnson will be the grand finale of the Dallas Poetry Project series on April 28th at the Texas Theatre. Awaji Johnson is a former Dallas Slam Champion and National Performance Poet, and Guante is a two-time National Poetry Slam champion. The evening will also host up and coming high school poet Ariel Warren, who recently won the 2018 Texas Poetry Out Loud competition and will be representing Texas at the Poetry Out Loud: National Recitation Contest in Washington DC. Created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, Poetry Out Loud encourages students to master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about great poetry, literary history and contemporary life through memorization and recitation.
