Join poet and artist facilitator Barbara Fant for an unforgettable evening in the art of performance poetry, also known as slam! Barbara has been on four National Poetry slam teams from Columbus and has represented the city in five Individual National and World Poetry slam competitions. She placed 8th out of 96 poets in the 2017 Women of the World Poetry Slam. Commissioned by The Columbus Foundation, her poem “Today, Beginning Again,” written for Columbus’s Bicentennial year, can be found in Revealed: Columbus, The Story of Us. Her first poetry collection, Paint, Inside Out was released in April 2010 from Penmanship Books of New York City when she was awarded The Cora Craig Award for Young Women Authors. Additionally, she is the author of two chapbooks, RibCaged and Them Brilliant Suns, both released in March of 2017.
