Miller is a Detroit, MI native, performance poet, LGBTQ activist, film producer, and founder of the “Artists Inn Detroit.” Natasha has been a member of four national slam teams, starred in a national Sprite commercial, a Shinola CNN ad, and she is a Women of the World Poetry Slam 3-time top five finalist.
Masaki Takahashi: An accomplished poet and community organizer, Takahashi is founder of The Poetry Room and has committed himself to building up Lansing's poetry culture.
Marzieh Ghiasi: Ghiasi began her foray into poetry translating Persian poems into English over a decade ago in Montreal. She has performed original poetry at stages including the Robin and the MICA Gallery in Lansing. In her spare time she works as a doctoral student in epidemiology.
Jillian Bowe: Bowe is a queer poet from Portage, MI, who has been writing poetry and performing in slams across the country since 2015, which is not that long, but ends up seeming pretty long because they’re only 21. In 2017, they founded Project Postcard, a project to provide underprivileged students with a slam poetry experience; this project has had workshops around the world, starting in the heart of little old Portage. They are studying music education and love collaborating with musicians and poets alike to create art of all kinds.
