Glow in the Dark Poetry Night

When Marquez McClinton was in third grade, he discovered his interest in poetry could possibly be something more than just a way to get a girl’s attention. His teacher noticed it too and encouraged him to keep writing. It was the same year that he also performed his first spoken word poem.

Today (and over 100 poems later), he has a new band with bassist Michael Cummings called the SPINSHIPS. They recently performed their first TEDx program in Huntsville last year and produced their first music video (see below).

 

He is a performer on the rise as well as a part of our library family- Marquez can usually be seen greeting and assisting patrons at the Madison Public Library as a Library Clerk.
