Barellie (Buh-Rell-Ee) Thompson (20) born, and currently living, in Baltimore is a student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and an avid writer. While he is new to the art scene and performing, he has been writing poetry since his early years of high school. Initially, he used his writing as a means of alleviating the pressures of school life. And even though he still uses writing for that purpose today, he hopes to move in a different direction, spreading positivity and encouragement through his poetry.
Alanah Nichole (24) born in NYC a resident of Baltimore is the curator of The "On Point" Open Mic Series & "Much more than an Open Mic" Poet, Writer and lover of the arts since childhood. Perhaps her love of writing stems from being an avid reader from early on or just gifted with the power she has with words. Either way Alanah's writing reveals her mastery of the poetic form and her deep understanding of this miraculous medium. Alanah's work is the truth of reality and often built out of intimate details concerning life, relationships and most controversially sex, politics & current events. Astounding for it's candor, it's eroticism and it's power to move. her strong powers of observation, extraordinary vocabulary and use of metaphor to appeal universally always brings audiences a linguistic surprise, her raw takes on her realities whether real or imagined have audiences snapping & wanting more.
