See you this Tuesday, July 28th for a BIG MONEY SLAM & Featured Poet Dalin Costello
Dalin Costello is an accomplished human of Charleston, SC origins, having grown up to be the blazing sword of Voltron while also moonlighting as light bulb illuminating the symbol of justice or… Bat Symbol, if you will. He is his mother’s righteous seed, propelling wit and intelligence of all forms through a pen. This humble journey began for him almost a year ago and since then he has propelled himself into the Seattle scene in ways that kick down doors and pull rugs from under ideals. His first spoken word poem was about a stolen suitcase and tofu still in the refrigerator. His last poem was about what it’s like having a black voice in America. Somewhere in between he found time to write about Raphael and Carmen Sandiego. Dalin is the current Rain City Slam MVP, was a Seattle Poetry Grand Slam Finalist, and most recently a Rain City IWPS Finals qualifier. It’s been a busy 2015. He likes brownies, which is a good note to end on.
