Reviews for SLAM! You're Gonna Wanna Hear This

SLAM was one of the best poetry collections I've read in a long time. With some poems leaving me in tears and others imparting feelings of joy, these poets have done an incredible job at showing why vulnerability can help us connect and empower. It serves as a beautiful introduction to anyone wanting to explore the spoken word poetry in its written form. -- Jaspreet Kaur, award-winning poet and author of <i>Brown Girl Like Me</i>
