From Our Soundbooth | July 14, 2016

This week on The Missouri Review Soundbooth Podcast we are excited to feature another of our runners up of the 2016 Miller Audio Prize Contest.  The runner up poetry submission is Fable The Poet’s”Picasso Baby.”

Fable The Poet is a Bi-racial North American writer, teacher, community activist, performer, and motivational speaker who hails from The Mitten State. (Michigan).

Fable The Poet is a Nationally Touring Artist highly noted for his work with the youth; spreading Mental Health Awareness using his own stories to consume the audience, and spread a much needed message: “At times, we all feel fragile. We are all paper boats entertaining the waves of life.”

He is an official partner of Mental Health America, and has sat on panels across the country discussing the importance of discussing Mental Health awareness with our youth.
He is known across the nation for crowd-interactive features that leave those attending enlightened and empowered.

Acoustic, through written word, with musical backing, or even with a live band you will be taken on an emotional rollercoaster unlike any other you have ever experienced.

Buckle up, prepare to make a new friend, and enjoy the ride.  Find out more about Fable at his website!

Next week we’ll be featuring our final Miller Audio Prize runner up.  And don’t forget about our fall Contest, the Jeffrey E. Smith Editor’s Prize, with winners in the categories of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction each receiving an award of $5,000!

We hope you enjoy Fable’s piece as much as we did!
