“Carin Malone aka Writeous Soul is a nationally recognized spoken word artist whose vision for the Memphis poetry scene has led her to create opportunities to propel other local artists into the national spotlight.
She is the founder of two event series that develop and showcase local poets and expose featured artists from other cities to Memphis. The Beale of Writes Poetry Slam prepares poets for regional and national level competitions. Participants compete for a cash prize and the chance to advance to a slam-off at the end of the season that determines who represents the Memphis poetry community on the road. You can catch the next installment this Saturday, January 21st at Rumba Room on South Main at 6pm.
The other event series has a different purpose and vibe. The Cloud 9 Experience is a weekly production that combines spoken word, comedy, and live music for a “beautiful collision of the arts” in the intimate lounge setting of Cloud Blu located on Hacks Cross. It’s a mix of veteran poets, popular featured artists, and newcomers to the art form. The next Cloud 9 Experience is coming up on January 23rd.”
