CLIENT NEWS: Poet Writeous Soul gets profiled on Choose901

"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."

Meet the #SimplyGiving Project Scavenger Hunt Participants

MEMPHIS, Tenn.- Seven Memphis-based community leaders and advocates will be representing local nonprofit organizations in a city-wide scavenger hunt during Fresh Touch Publicity's 5th Annual #SimplyGiving Project, a week-long grassroots fundraiser for local nonprofits, October 4-10. The date of the actual scavenger hunt is Saturday, October 10, 11 a.m. beginning at The Candle Bakery located at 2838 Hickory Hill Rd, Ste 11. Back in May, these nonprofit organizations were nominated to be represented during the scavenger hunt: the Memphis HBCU Scholarship Foundation, H.U.S.H. Inc, It's a Girl's World, Old Path Ministries, Our Grass Our Roots, Liberated Audio, and Raising the B.A.R.

The community leaders randomly will select the nonprofit that he or she will be trying to win the grand prize for. They will be paired with a representative of that organization and they will be given clues to different businesses around the city that will lead them to the finish line.

"It was important for us to use community leaders who know the city, who are already supporting local businesses and who advocate for the smaller nonprofit organizations," said TJ Jefferson, Principal Owner of Fresh Touch Publicity. "We choose people who may not always get spotlighted but they're doing the work anyways."

Volunteers are needed to help make the event a success. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/sg5volunteers. We will have a volunteer orientation but if you have any questions before then, contact Volunteer Coordinator Amber Covington at simplygiving@freshtouchpublicity.com
