Featured Poet for March - Samantha Thornhill

This year I am going to try focusing on new and emerging poets rather than the established and well known. They need all the support they can get, and I'd like to think that my little blog can be of, at least a little, assistance.


Samantha Thornhill


Samantha has a {website} and a {blog}. 
Head on over and check out what she has to offer.

One of the first things you'll notice when you go looking for Ms Thornhill's poetry, is that you won't find it in the usual places. Samantha is a performance artist and you will find a lot of her her on {YouTube}.

Originally from Trinidad & Tobago, she teaches poetry & performance to middle and high school youth at the Juilliard School in New York City, and creative writing seminars at the Bronx Academy of Letters. Performing and lecturing all over the world, she is definitely on the rise.
