Dominique Christina - “For Emmett Till” (WoWPS 2014)

"Two neat white rows of perfect teeth sit totem-like in his mouth. And the world did not know him because he had not been murdered yet."

Women of the World Poetry Slam champion, in 2014 AND 2012. So excited to have our first video of her up.

This woman stirs up all the spirits. Watch.

Desireé Dallagiacomo - “Thighs” (WOWPS 2014)

"My thighs say: We don’t want your praise, man on the street corner… man in the parking garage… man in Walgreens while we’re buying tampons…"

Disappointed that you can’t make it to the Women of the World Poetry Slam Finals in Austin tonight? We can help! Our first video from the tournament!
