Ottawa slam poet visits Loyalist PR

Loyalist PR students celebrated Inauguration Day 2009 with an amazing slam poetry performance and writing workshop delivered by spoken word artist Ritallin (aka Greg Frankson of Ottawa).

Greg led us through a step-by-step process of writing our own slam poetry to help get us out of the dreaded writing "rut." His delicious grasp of the English language helped us all break free from our writing traditions, and encouraged us to discover our own inner poets.

We're all richer for knowing you, Greg. Peace.

That blog post was like poetry itself.. beautiful!

And I agree, every writer should discover slam poetry at some point in their careers.

Writing is art, and Ritallin proves it with the spoken word.
