According to the Saul Williams website:
Saul Williams is editing an anthology of fresh, new, and unheard voices in modern poetry. All are welcome to submit (please no more than 3 poems). Any and all topics are welcome. Send your sub/trans/missions to firstname.lastname@example.org Spread the word!!!
I am going to mention it to my students and might even submit some of my own work! Even if it doesn’t get accepted, this provides students with an authentic audience for their work!
This video is of one of my (many) favourite pieces of Saul William’s. Be warned, he does use the forbidden f-word (but just once)! I find this extremely powerful.
Saul Williams – Talk to Strangers (with lyrics)
I saw him perform live a few years back and it was an incredible experience. Highly recommended, as long as you don’t mind some strong language.
