We are the Poetic Assassins a spoken word collective based in the Midwest. We are also the founders of a literary organization by the name of Sai Werd Ink. The mission of Sai Werd Ink is to promote equality through increasing literacy. We believe that the most powerful tool a human possesses is their voice and ability to be heard. To this end Sai Werd Ink uses the art of spoken word to run workshops, residencies and of course perform. The Poetic Assassins are award winning performers (VERVE grant awarded by Bay Area poet Paul Flores, Urban Griot award best spoken word collective and best production). They have performed at events including Peace Jam with Desmond Tutu, Standing on the Shoulders of Giants (40th anniversary of Morril Hall takeover for civil rights at the University of Minnesota),Hip Hop Against Homophobia, Unapologetic Vernacular featuring Meta Def and Gemineye (NY), as well as numerous other shows revolving around issues of gender equality, class, and race. They have been contracted to run workshops for organizations such as the Loft among many others, as well as residencies with national organizations like Freedom School. Poetic Assassins



"Born on a Battlefield With Only a Pen and a Voice"

WHAT IS BEING SAID ABOUT POETIC ASSASSINS:

"It was a really great experience. You made us all feel like we were a
part of something powerful"

"...your performance was unlike anything I've ever experienced. It was amazingly beautiful, energizing, and inspirational."

"The performance was AH-MAZING!!! I've never seen or heard anything like
it. It was very powerful and moving."

"The spoken word of Poetic Assassins is not only powerful, it is
educational. But it is not the sort of education that you can get in
school-it is better, and they are clearly passionate about their messages!"
