Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.

        Now that would be a very grand thing indeed! I would feel like I have a little out-post! HEY talking of outposts – I have a little blog I don’t know if I’ve mentioned, called Well Tempered Bards, and we used to run a guest bards series – I would LOVE if you’d consider writing something to be shared there one day…

          I am so in love with you right now. <3
          You just made my day. Any time. You let me know what you want and I’m on it. Actually, your spoken word poem inspired me. I wrote something today, not sure if it will count, but want you to take a look at it. Well, when I get it cleaned up and organized anyway. I haven’t edited it yet and it needs some.

            How does next Friday sound? We used to do Guest Bards on a Friday 🙂 and YAY! Thank you *glee*

            I very, very much want to see what you wrote once it’s organised. And *I* inspired you? I LOVE how Samara’s piece is rippling out and affecting so many people 🙂 Isn’t poetry amazing?

              Yes, Samara inspired you, you inspired me. I LOVE poetry. My niece loves Slam Poetry (spoken word) and I think she will be excited too.
              I’m not sure how mine is going to sound because, well, it’s not actually from my/a female’s point of view. We’ll see. I’m not sure of the length but like I said editing will help. LOL
              And Friday sounds fine. What would you like for me to write? Poem, prose, subject…anything you wish my dear.

                That sounds INTRIGUING! Wow! Now I’m REALLY excited.

                With slam poetry (because I’m not familiar) is it a little like a rap battle, where the opponents have nothing prepared in advance, and make it up on the spot?

                I would love for you to write whatever is in your heart to be written 😀

    Lizzi, here’s some examples of Slam poetry. It’s become a competition nowadays but it used to be performance poetry. Not read from a page but that has also changed. It’s written down and performed but you still don’t read it from a page. The best ones are the ones made up on the spot and there are places here in Dallas-Fort Worth where you can go watch poetry slams. It’s kind of cool. I’ve also heard it called Button Poetry. Not sure what the difference is between it all.
