My name is Marcel Price, but most in my city call me "Fable".
I have been writing/preforming since about 2007.
MANY people tell me I am talented, and that "I am going somewhere".
BUT, I disagree.
I wen't out of MI, for the first time in my life about 2 weeks ago.
I HAD, to go to chicago, as "The Green Mill" is the oldest spoken word venue/slam venue, in the U.S.
So, I went there.
I HEARD SO MANY, nice, humbling words, AND I won their slam!!!
Although I know my craft,
I do NOT know how to go about chasing it properly,
a lot of people in my city (At least in the hip-hop scene) HATE,
I hope that the poetry scene is not the same, as I see it as an art where you help/push your culture, so it can continue to grow and evolve.
So my Questions:
-How do you go about finding individual Slams?
-How do you go about finding features/Venues, so you can travel, and make money at least just to get there and back?
-How do you spread your work here? Is there a section?
I have been on other forums for other things, and I LOVE the idea of this, if I mis posted this, please, let me know where i should post this.
I would appreciate any insight!
