Chelsey Richardson and D'Mario Carter performing spoken word live at Joeseppi's Italian Ristorante in Tacoma, WA

The featured poet of the evening is Chelsey Richardson, a Seattle native believes that poetry lives everywhere. Her writing is influenced by but not limited to race, politics, and motherhood. "Her writing requires you to think critically and examine the world in which we live. She is a writer that truly represents independent poetic expression. There is a cleverness and creativity in her prose that draws the reader or listener in. She is an amazing teaching artist and mentor in Seattle who is poised for a dynamic career."

D'Mario Carter, is an artist, activist and motivational speaker. He has traveled the West Coast and beyond to deliver his message while staying true to his brand and organization Woke & Heard. It's not about the number of snaps, but the amount of people who listen to his messages and absorb it into their lives and apply it to their past, future, and present. His main focus is always finding a way to work towards Community Empowerment. Carter has inhaled the air and exhaled his heart and soul so people of all ages, color, and gender can breathe easy.
