Great video published in 2014 from our friends at @glappitnova — ‪Tips on Becoming The Best Artist from Cusp 2017 presenter Kevin Coval @kevincoval .
"Don't be whack. There is a lot of bad art in the world so don't contribute to that heap of garbage." Here are some tips for becoming the best artist by Kevin Coval, founder of the largest youth poetry slam in the world. We are super excited to have him as one of the many storytellers at Glappitnova this year.
Kevin Coval is the poet the Chicago Tribune called "the voice of the new Chicago" and who the Boston Globe says is "the city's unofficial poet laureate". Author of Schtick, L-vis Lives!: Racemusic Poems, Everyday People, Slingshots: A Hip-Hop Poetica, and More Shit Chief Keef Don't Like, Coval is the founder of Louder Than A Bomb: The Chicago Youth Poetry Festival and Artistic Director of Young Chicago Authors, LTAB's non-profit home. Coval teaches hip-hop aesthetics at The University of Illinois-Chicago, is a 4x HBO Def Poet, and has written for a wide variety of publications including, The Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, National Public Radio's Chicago affiliate WBEZ, The Spoken Word Revolution Redux (Source), Handbook of Public Pedagogy (Routledge) 101 Changemakers: Rebels and Radicals Who Changed U.S. History (Haymarket) & It Was Written: Reading Nas's Illmatic, ed. by Michael Eric Dyson (Basic). Coval won a New Voices/New Visions award from the Kennedy Center for a play co-authored with Idris Goodwin about graffiti writers called, This is Modern Art, that will premiere in the winter of 2015 at Steppenwolf Theater and is currently editing an anthology, The Breakbeat Poets: New American Poetry in the Age of Hip-Hop (Haymarket) due out February 2015. @kevincoval on all social media especially instagram. via:

@nprcodeswitch is a podcast that focuses on race and identity, but it's been such a beacon of inspiration, affirmation, and critical thinking for so many people of color. It easily has become one of my favorite podcasts, and it just keeps getting better. Producing #CodeSwitchLive with @storyproducer has been one of my proudest accomplishments at WBEZ. This is how we can make an impact. A year ago I met @harikondabolu after a show, and yesterday I was backstage with him for my job. Crazy, right? Thanks to the 1500 who came out and made our show a sold out one! Thanks to Shereen Marisol Meraji and Gene Demby for being so cool, fun, and kickass.

In October, we held our 4th annual “A Book that Changed My Life” fundraising event at the Fulton Street Collective. Ten amazing presenters shared their personal stories about HOW BOOKS CHANGE LIVES! It was a wonderful evening! Here we have our emcee, WBEZ’s Tony Sarabia and musician, Jason Narducy, who won this year’s fan favorite award. Shout out to Dennis Sevilla of 9 Muses Photo for this photo!
