Free Verse presents Aja Monet

October 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

This year’s poetry festival headliner, Aja Monet will be joining us for poetry and conversation on our Instagram Live on October 16 at 7pm, hosted by poet and curator Asiah Mae.

Aja Monet is a Caribbean American poet. Her poems are wise, lyrical, and courageous. Monet won the legendary Nuyorican Poet’s Café Grand Slam title and has been internationally recognized for combining her spellbound voice and vivid poetic imagery on stage.

In 2018, Monet’s first full collection of poetry, My Mother Was A Freedom Fighter, was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work. She was a featured speaker at TEDWomen 2018 for her meaningful work in South Florida with Smoke Signals Studio.

We invite you all to listen to this free virtual reading. And learn from one of the most powerful voices in poetry.
