Spit Dat is BACK With Your Favorite Poet's Favorite Poets
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 on Zoom!
Virtual Lobby Opens at 7:30PM, Event from 8-9:30PM
Facebook Live Stream Begins at 8PM
This month Spit Dat celebrates two pillars of poetry and veritable celebrities of slam. And considering that this month's theme is "Your Favorite Poets' Favorite Poets", it is only fitting that those two be Gayle Danley and Twain Dooley. The Danley-Dooley duo have inspired and influenced legions of writers and performers with their unmatched gifts of candor, cleverness, heart and soul. And Monday, September 7 is quite a fitting date to celebrate these two, considering it is their wedding anniversary!
ABOUT THE FEATURES:
About Gayle Danley
Gayle Danley, B.A. Howard University, M.S. Syracuse University, is a championship poet and grief writer. She has won both the national and international poetry slam titles and has been featured on Sixty Minutes, in the Baltimore Sun and Washington Post, which wrote:
Gayle Danley has been earning acclaim with the power of her words for almost 15 years. She performs poetry and teaches it to children all over Maryland, inspiring almost everyone who hears her with her frank personal revelations and her ability to coax cathartic self-expression out of some of the most unlikely students.

About Twain Dooley
