Poem: “Follow Your Dreams”
Recorded: January 2, 2021
In part two, Poetry Club enthusiastically examines RC Weslowski’s “Follow Your Dreams”, a three-minute slam performance poem. The work brings up many questions such as is slam poetry poetry, and if so HOW do you approach it? We also explore if “writing hungry” produces better work and does success ruin the quality of creative expression or strengthen it.
Thank you, RC for sharing your words. We really enjoyed your three poems. -Poetry Club
