Hello beautiful people. This week I competed in the Inspired Word's Grand Master Slam and it was a great and lively night. There was a spark in the air and everyone could feel it. I have been going to the inspired word for close to 3 years now and it is wonderful to see how this series has grown not only in clientele or numbers but there is a creative life force there that happens where the inferno inside your stomach is always writing. I like when a reading series allows for inspiration to happen at all aspects of the show. Inspired Word has been great to Great Weather for Media and we certainly thank them for that. They have always believed, which is why I am sure they are still around. For some of you that don't know, the inspired word is a conception of Mike Geffner and it has flowered. They hold an open mic 5 days a week and they don't just limit it to poetry; music and comedy are now becoming a part of that spark as well.
