Leon Alexander Features at Palabra!
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington
Featured reader is Leon Alexander
Leon Alexander was raised in Atlanta, GA and began writing poetry at age 13. His enjoyment of written and oral expression led him to creating hip hop music during his 20’s. After a period of inactivity during his late 20’s and early 30’s, Leon began to rediscover himself by continuing to write poetry. He also used his writing as a method to face his fear of public speaking, as he began to share his writing publicly at open readings. Leon’s writing parallels his journey of seeking understanding, meaning, and fulfillment in life, and his attempt to spread the same to others
After the featured reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read. Everyone is welcome to come and share a poem, song lyrics, reading or a short story or just bring your ears for listening and enjoy the evening. Original poetry is always appreciated. Everyone needs some place to speak their minds and Palabra is that place. We are an inclusive and supportive group that aim to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment, so all talent levels are welcome.
Doors open at 6:30pm and Poetry starts at 7:00pm sharp! We will have a sign-up sheet available at the counter. Each poet will speak for 3-5 minutes each so that everyone who wants to read can have a chance! Palabra poetry night will be every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
