April 9 Feature Silence Wordsmith

Silence Wordsmith struggles with stage fright but powers through it because poetry is her passion. She writes for catharsis and is known to dress to express. Her interest in poetry was sparked at 14 years old after receiving an eloquent love letter. She has been writing ever since. Mostly writing in prose, sometimes she will recite a quick haiku or a lengthy ballad. Pairing performance and poetry, Silence Wordsmith.

Check out Silence Wordsmith’s Facebook group, Writer’s Wart.

If you have witnessed Silence Wordsmith perform her poetry, you’ve felt the way she can make the world spin on her words. If you have not yet, all the more fortunate this occasion. We cannot wait to gather with you this Saturday, for the experience of this feature set, and to see and hear what you have to say.
