Austin's own Teresa Johnson brings her award-winning slam poetry to kick off a four-day symposium.

Spring is well and alive and what better way to welcome the season than poetry and community? Join us for the opening event of the UNM Chican@ Studies Department's "Resistencia: Writing Across Borders" Symposium! That's right! Lobo Slam is starting this 4 day symposium with a bang! A BIG BANG!

Our feature for this month is Austin's own, Teresa Johnson!

Teresa Johnson is a writer and spoken word performer in Austin, Texas. She has competed in the Finals and Group Piece Finals at the National Poetry Slam three times. Her writing has been featured in theatrical performances, online newspapers, and three chapbooks. Her new book, “Mnemosyne,” is her first book with an honest-to-goodness bar code.
