About Phil Kaye:
Raised in a California beach town to a Japanese mother and Jewish-American father, Phil first fell in love with spoken word poetry at age 17. Since then, he has performed in hundreds of venues in fifteen countries. His work has been viewed online over five million times and featured in media outlets ranging from NPR to Al Jazeera America to Upworthy.com. Phil is a graduate of Brown University, where he was head coordinator of Space in Prisons for the Arts and Creative Expression (SPACE) and taught weekly poetry workshops in maximum security prisons. When not on the road, Phil lives in New York City and spends his time writing new work, using 90′s slang, and quietly wondering to himself what the dealio is.
About Bernard Ferguson:
Bernard is a Bahamian poet living in Uptown, Minneapolis. He is a 2017 Pushcart Prize nominee and has had work published in numerous journals and anthologies, including the Best New Poets 2017 anthology. In Fall 2018, Bernard will move to New York to pursue his MFA at NYU, where he has been awarded a Writers in the Schools fellowship. Unfortunately, his most pressing goal is to convince you that fall is a god-awful season. He wants you to, instead, consider spring and the green buds growing on the trees of Minnesota. He wants you to consider the tapestry coming back to life.
