Diva Delight: Anis Mojgani, "Shake the Dust"

Anis Mojgani, the two time National Poetry Slam Champion, recently performed "Shake the Dust." I totally had to share it with rgz. Enjoy!

Awesome. I'm not digging the beard. I met him at a poetry slam in my hometown in NY and he's really awesome live. I think I gushed to him over his poetry like a fangirl. (This was probs 2 years ago).

Readergirlz rocks for posting such a cool video.

Another great slammer is Buddy Wakefield. OH MY GOD. So awesome. And Taylor Mali.

Did you know that Seattle slam poet Karen Finneyfrock (http://finneyfrock.wordpress.com/)recently sold her first YA novel? I can NOT wait for it! Karen is an awesome writer and a super-cool lady!
