A Busboys and Poetry Event hosted this week by Simply Sherri.
California born and Maryland raised, Simply Sherri started writing in 2001 and started reciting her work in 2008 in her poetic home of Baltimore. With topics ranging from love and relationships to depression and verbal abuse, her writing style is easy going and a reflection of her world.
Simply Sherri has spotlighted and featured in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington and Atlanta. In 2010 she released her debut poetry CD Liquefy. She released her first book “Love Simply” in 2015. She is the host of several poetry venues between Baltimore, MD & Washington, DC.
WRITING4MYLIFE (Archie the Messenger & Lyrical the Lyricist)
Dynamic duo is a term usually reserved for the likes of comic book heroes, but if it were to apply to Spoken word poetry, Writing4mylife (W4ML)would be it.
Comprised of super poets Archie the Messenger (ATM) and Lyrical the Lyricist, Writing4MyLife are two poets redefining the art of storytelling through spoken word, comedy, and improv. With a generational voice and vibration to make you sway, the two turn rhymes into rhythms, and poems into plays.
The two have performed together for 15 years and in that time have performed at hundreds of venues around the country. They created a two-man spoken word play that toured to six cities, as well as an ongoing “Awesome” show showcasing the nation’s best spoken word artist.
Individually the two are both published authors, and are currently working on the Writing4mylife documentary exploring the life and world of spoken word artists.
