About 2Deep

         hr_2Deep54

          2Deep the Poetess has certainly made a name for herself in the poetry community since 2006 by performing at Ottawa University (Canada), Cornell University, and opening for the late Gill Scott-Heron in 2009. She was a member of Busboys and Poets’ 2009 Slam Team, Word War II Champion, and the Busboys and Poets’ Slam Master. Having her Bachelors of Fine Arts and Masters of Fine Arts degrees gave her a solid foundation from which she could build her creative empire. She’s sold over 300 copies of her debut book, Spoken Heard, and stays busy with her blog 2DeepUncensored.

 You need a poet to perform at your wedding? College graduation party? After-school program? University event? Or just need a plain,old acting coach? Well, I’m available for them all. You can contact me at Poetess_2deep@yahoo.com and I will respond at my earliest convenience.

  1. Read some of your poetry last night. Wanted to give my own life to take away the pain & erase the memories. I know I will never believe in reincarnation bcuz I want there to be an eternal hell for people who harm children. May love & healing surround your wounds sister. I hope one day if you haven’t already get to hear the story of Joyce Meyer who has a similar story.
