Atlanta poet Theresa Davis wins Women of the World Poetry Slam

Atlanta poet, spoken word artist and educator Theresa Davis has won the Women of the World Poetry Slam held this month in Columbus, Ohio. beating off competition from 70 other women from around America to take the top spot. But her win almost didn’t happen, AtlantaIntown reported.

Apparently after making travel arrangements and weeks of rehearsal, Davis discovered that because of miscommunication, she had not been officially registered as a participant in the event.

The video features Davis in a live show with her rather unique take on the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale.


  1. Hmmm...I just wrote a long and very clever comment (HA!) and tried to submit it twice over on your Frankenstein post on your other blog, and both times Blogger ate my comment and refused to give it back to me. Now the video here is refusing to play for me. I guess my luck with computers is not good today. I'll see if Blogger will let me send this comment through.

    What a disappointment that would have been if she had gone through all of that only to find out she wasn't registered!! Yikes. Have a good weekend, David. :)

  2. strange Daisy - someone else had a problem posting on that blog. Not that I'm techno savvy enough to work out what's wrong. Have a great weekend too.
