Visiting Writers Series: Nate Marshall

When: Tue., Feb. 10, 7 p.m. 2015

The 2008 Louder Than a Bomb youth poetry slam competition in Chicago featured one Nate Marshall, who had returned for his sixth and final performance there. Among other participants, Marshall was filmed in the months leading up to the event, and the resulting 2011 documentary Louder Than a Bomb won numerous awards and earned a rare 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Since then, Marshall has graduated from Vanderbilt, penned a chapbook, and made a living writing poetry, rapping and educating. This is a guy who incorporates a well-placed "villanelle" mention into his rhymes, along with "my ego is Langston Huge." Hear his free talk at 7 tonight as part of Colorado College's Visiting Writers Series at the Gates Common Room (1025 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu). — Edie Adelstein
