Join us for upcoming Midwest Poetics workshop where artists will share work with a peer group led by Melissa Ferrer (&) and One Mic Stand KC!
Midwest Poetics is an opportunity for artists to make space, celebrate and connect with the many voices that make the music and performance scenes that thrive in the Midwest. We want to give the mic to Black, and Indigenous vocalists, poets, writers, musicians and performers of color to celebrate their craft. Midwest Poetics is a space for us all where we will, both workshop new material in a peer-to-peer setting. Workshops will lead up to a quarterly showcase where artists will be encouraged to share what they’ve workshopped!


Melissa Ferrer (&) is a spoken word poet, author, musician, speaker and educator. Her spoken word poems and songs are mostly meditations and responses to the world around her and her own internal journey. She seeks to reveal a sense of solidarity in all people, encourage people to act unto peace and love, and foster community among both like and unlike minded people. Recently, she’s been yearning to set down her ego and replace it with a jubilation of the spirit.
