Nayahtone in his own words: "Poet, singer, song writer raised in Grand Rapids Michigan came to Kalamazoo in 2006 to go to WMU to study Organizational Communication. I started doing slam poetry my freshman year where I soon became one half of the poetic duo Poetik Reflextions. after the other half (Mic. J Write) left after graduation I went on developing myself as a writer. My inspiration is Life and the lives of other my pieces usually always are told like a story. I really want people to come to my show and have a blast. Expect to laugh and expect t think but mostly to laugh."

We had a few more folks at the July slam than we had at the June slam.  That's an encouraging sign. There were only three people who signed up to slam, but they were three of the most talented young poets I've seen in years.  Fable, Christina and Nathan (aka Nay-a-tone).  Ashnee did a wonderful job with her first slam feature; I totally knew she would.  I really hope this new incarnation of the Kzoo Poetry Slam takes off.  I'd love the opportunity to send some of my new friends to compete in a national slam someday.
