We were very excited to host two renowned poetry slammers at GISSV in Mountain View.
German poet Julia Engelmann, winner of the Bremer Slammer-Filet (2010), and local Mighty Mike McGee, winner of the National Poetry Slam (2003) and the Individual World Poetry Slam (2006), performed in front of enthusiastic high school students and teachers. Afterwards, the slammers answered questions and provided insight into their daily life, the power of words and the writing process as a whole.
