Kelowna Poetry Slam - Kickoff Classic - Meet the Poets

Andrew Brown

Andrew is a high school English teacher who is a newcomer to the slam scene. He wrote his first spoken word poem 3 years ago (and has since been a huge fan of the medium), in his first year of teaching, when teaching spoken word poetry for the first time. Being a hip hop fan for most of his life, Andrew started writing lyrics at this same time and recorded his first song that year. Social justice, being a teacher, growing as a father and husband and hip hop are what inspire him to write. 

Come find Andrew and cheer him on during our Kickoff Classic at The Well Pub, September 8th from 7-9pm. Tickets $10 presale at Mosaic Bookstore.
