Tuesday was phenomenal. Not only did we have an amazing show at Tides Theatre for the Off/Page Project, but I got to spend the day with Tama, Corey, and Jada from the Stockton With our Words poetry collective. It was crazy to see them interact with our UC Berkeley CalSlam poets during the post-performance talkback. Inspiration found on all sides of the geographical divide Tuesday, and I’m so happy everything worked out.
