Learn to create and perform original poetry with Philadelphia-based teaching artist Lamot "Napalm" Dixon!
To register: tiny.cc/MUSpoken
Poet Lamont Dixon is dedicated to providing language arts education programs for young and old. All of his techniques are guided by this philosophy: children are imaginative, receptive, creative individuals. Lamont remains committed to the idea that the individual mind for child and adult is its own university of arts.
Lamont, aka Napalm Da Bomb, has been a prominent presence on the music/poetry scene for many years, one who often mentors young artists. As a performance poet/teaching artist, Lamont demonstrates what he describes as "vibepoetics" - an eclectic mixing of multiple artistic genres to provide dramatic language arts education. Lamont’s poetry has been published in many magazines, his latest book of poetry is Come Ride My Poems and he also appears on various jazz CDs.
