Born and raised in Philadelphia, Warren Longmire
is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and co-founder of the Excellano Project Spoken Word collective. He is a two-time member of the Philadelphia Fuze slam poetry team and two-time member of the UPenn College Union poetry team.
When pried from his second life as a obsessive computer programmer, he can be found making abrupt pauses and wild hand gestures in poetry venues throughout the tri-state area. His works have appeared in Pax Americana, Certain Circuits, The New Purlieu Review and Apiary Magazine.
Feel free to read some of his work here or to check him out on Youtube.
This month World Above Free Poetry Nights continues its new format with host Ben Heins. We’ll start the evening with our usual Open Mic, and participants will read one poem (and only one poem) that is less than two minutes long. We’ll have our break just before 8pm, and we’ll return to a free take-home writing prompt, introduced by the host or the prompt author. Then, featured poet Warren Longmire will read.
Looking forward to seeing all of you at Dante Hall on Wednesday, April 22nd at 7pm.
Please invite your friends to this event, join and share it on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/sjpoets), and even link our website (http://www.sjpoets.wordpress.com) to your social media.
