Geof is the author of four books of poems and three books for teachers, and is Vermont’s reigning poetry slam champion.
In the past fifty years, a magical loosening of “poetry” has opened doors for reluctant readers, and the performance of poems in “poetry slams” has attracted new audiences. The assumption of sing-song or anticipation of hidden metaphors no longer applies.
In this informal talk, slam poet Geof Hewitt will offer poems that defy stereotype, and discuss strategies for finding more.
