MSU Slam Team presents Buddy Wakefield

Next Tuesday, April 8, the MSU Slam Team is sponsoring a performance by slam poet Buddy Wakefield.

MSU Slam Team Vice President Marianne Caddy said Wakefield has visited campus once before for a workshop.

“It was so meaningful to a lot of people that I wanted to make sure it happened again,” Caddy, 20, said. “He’s so uniquely himself and so true.”

The performance starts at 7:00 p.m. in Snyder Hall in the LookOut! Gallery. A $7 donation at the door is requested, but not necessary.

Caddy said she hopes that people will come to the reading to hear the messages in Wakefield’s poems – something she found helpful last year.

“Personally, last year, that performance was at a transitional point in my life, and the messages he sends through his poetry were something I needed to get through the things I was dealing with,” Caddy said.

The Center for Poetry opened in the fall of 2007 to encourage the reading, writing, and discussion of poetry and to create an awareness of the place and power of poetry in our everyday lives. We think about this in a number of ways, including through readings, shows, community outreach, and workshops. We are at work building a poetry community at MSU and in the greater Lansing area.
