Artist’s Statement

I am a performance poet. The performances follow my motto: “poetry that glitters”. I have roots in Poetry Slam, and I studied Creative Writing with Language Poets. Picking up the musicality and elements of rap while living in Detroit, my own poems and lyrics use all these influences as a basis. On stage, my free reciting has a somatic quality. I like to reach you through an interdisciplinary approach, using music, and for instance, a pinch of glitter to look at!

In writing, performing, and my whole life it is my duty to protect the emotional element and to create something beautiful.

Book

My poems are “poetry that glitters” even without the shiny wrapping paper; when read they twinkle as well. Allow my collection of poems in German, “Meer-Maid” to take you into realms of your own thoughts and feelings.

Twitter

Read a rhyme a day that includes a rare German word. English translation included. My twitter name “@wrtsucht” is derived from: Wortsucht* which means * addiction to words.

Workshops & Coaching

Along with performing, I love teaching. Thus, I teach workshops and seminars. They are beneficial for your voice, presence, and will give you more self-awareness. Maybe you need to hold a class-room presentation, host a radio show, or recite a poem on a birthday party – whatever your public appearance might be, I will help prepare you for it. You will be given new inspiration for creative writing, or the push to start with it for the first time. Also, you can learn everything about performance poetry that you always wanted to know. Make this plunge into poetry a gift for yourself, or someone special!
Additionally, I offer private sessions in person or via Skype. I look forward to being your teacher and mentor!

YouTube

My video clip, clips from live performances, interviews as a host, and more.
And here comes my poetry demo. It starts with a cover of “My time at Chrysler” by Blair. Then follows my own poetry – sometimes in collaboration with other artists.
