October 12th, 2013 was the start to Canvas of Words and their Poetry & Art Festival. Always a lover of poetry, I jumped at the opportunity to witness the explosion of live poetic artistry. The team was a bit apprehensive at first, as the poetry festival was held at a church. First thought was, how real can this poetry truly get? Held within the compounds of the Lord’s house. Well, we were terribly mistaken, these poets gave new life to the meaning Rock The Mic!

From the racy humor of the host John Chance Acevedo to beautiful curator of Canvas of Words, Wendy Angulo, the poetry festival was a hit. Catch the performances down below.

Its hardly enough to hear me go on and on about how phenomenal all these poets were, see them perform for yourself down below. Catch the next Canvas of Words this coming March! Follow them on Facebook and Instagram @canvasofwords
