IN-Q, short for In Question, is an award-winning poet, best-selling author, and multi-platinum songwriter. His groundbreaking achievements include being named to Oprah’s SuperSoul 100 list of the world’s most influential thought leaders; being the first spoken word artist to perform with Cirque du Soleil; and being featured on A&E, ESPN, and HBO’s “Def Poetry Jam.” He has inspired countless audiences around the world, live and virtually, through his performances and storytelling workshops. Many of his recent poetry videos have gone viral, with over 70 million views combined, and his stand-up poetry special, IN-Q – Live at the Ace Theatre, is now streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. In 2020, IN-Q partnered with HarperOne to release his critically acclaimed first book, Inquire Within, which landed him on multiple best-seller lists, and has since been nominated for the prestigious Audie Award.
Looking ahead: Episode 5 with Alyce Smith Cooper and episode 6 with Karla Cordero.
The Poet’s Tree, hosted by Old Globe Teaching Artist, spoken word poet, and actor Gill Sotu, is a new program that takes a deep dive into the world of modern poetry and how artists tell compelling stories using only the power of the spoken word. Each week Gill will interview a poet and discuss their poetry style, how it is effective, tools they suggest to help the audience grow in their own work, and inspirations. Get swept away by the power of words and learn how to write your own poetry with weekly prompts!
When: Every Tuesday, live from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. PT
