FEATURED READER: VANESSA DAVIS
A local poet in the Syracuse area, Vanessa was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. Poetry was once not for this
but when she heard spoken word poets, such as Nikki Giovanni and The Last Poets, Vanessa soon found her poetic
voice. Vanessa gained recognition in the open mic sessions in the 90’s. She’s been a Syracuse Poetry Slam! finalist
and a judge at the National Slam! Vanessa has been published in the Proud magazine and the Syracuse Review.
