    It’s about damn time!!!
    Spoken word poets deserve to have a Public Venue at Pridefest
    so that we can express ourself as our venues here in Milwaukee Wisconsin have been slowly but surely disappearing from the landscape for years and this truly needs to change! We really need to see a return of poetic venues to Milwaukee Wisconsin. Poetry in Milwaukee Wisconsin can be traced all the way back to the 1800’s. Furthermore poetry in Wisconsin has been influential on tons of Artists, Musicians, Cinematographers,Architects, Doctors and the list goes on.
