National Poetry Month Presents: Messages of Motivation and Love
with Mic Tha Poet & Seneca Wilson from the Underground Poetry Spot
with special guest Corey Smithson
Michael Gaut – better known as Mic Tha Poet – has been a staple of the spoken word arts for more than five years. A talented and crafty writer, Mic shifts seamlessly through the often ignored corridors which connect past and present poetry. His poetry is never boring, always insightful, and his catalogue of spoken-word merits speaks for itself. A graduate of Niagara University, Mic’s poetic flow ranges topics wider than the Niagara River and his lyrics hit harder than the Falls. Mic has been published in two anthologies and has won slam titles in Syracuse, Buffalo, and Queens, NY. Additionally, Mic has shared stages with many of the world’s most recognizable spoken-word artists, including Georgia Me, Taalam Acey, Shihan Van Clief, Eric Darby, and Gemineye.

Seneca Wilson will never be done. Consistently pushing onward and upward, Seneca began his journey in Pascagoula, Mississippi, and he currently resides in central New York. He is a genuine renaissance man with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and understanding; he is the visionary founder of The Underground Poetry Spot and a basketball coach at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He is the author of two published chapbooks and boasts achievements and accolades in every corridor of life he traverses; his welcoming temperament exceeds conventional congeniality. Quietly, Seneca is a walking motivational speech; a human billboard advertising the possible. And when he speaks, he is benevolent—when he listens, you are heard.
