Poetry Slam: The Cliff
By Ethan Horst
The forensics team and Writer’s Block, a writer’s group that meets biweekly on campus, partnered to present The Cliff, Grace College’s first live poetry slam.
Ten students presented their work at The Cliff. Kaylee Griest performed “I’m Not a Good Christian,” Brittany Boyd presented “I Still Love,” Olivia Bottorf performed “Love Notes,” Jonas Clayton presented “Yin Yang,” Henrietta Carter presented “Revelations of My Father,” Amaris Longenecker performed “In Plain Sight,” Dorian Cushingberry presented “Why,” Elizabeth Mattia performed “3 a.m. Thoughts,” Isaiah Snell presented “I am Directionally Challenged,” and Chloe Woods performed “Dating… at Grace College.”
At the end of the evening, the audience voted on the poet of the night and master of ceremonies Jared Mishne presented the winner, Chloe Woods, with a gift certificate for Light Rail Cafe.
