Jael Uribe | Nominated | Poet Laureate | in Connecticut

Last Saturday 1st. September, 2018, within the celebration 10 years of the National Beat Poetry Festival, the Dominican writer and founder of the Woman Scream International Poetry and Arts Festival, Jael Uribe was nominated "International Beat Poetry Laureate 2018-2019. The ceremony, in which Uribe was present, was held in the city of New Hartford, Connecticut, USA at 2 pm, with the presence of national poets and guests from abroad.

Jael Uribe expressed gratitude as her voice was taken into account by the "Beat Poets" of this new generation, compared to the silence that characterized the presence of most women that belonged to the “Beat Poetry Movement” in previous years. Later on, she delighted the audience with her poetry-performance and declaimed poems in English and Spanish. The events were held from August 31 to September 4, with the participation of poets and musicians from different generations.

In addition, there was an "open mic" section, space for all poets who came to the festival to showcase their talent. The festival's agenda took place in two different locations: Noelke Gallery in Torrington, CT and The Licia & Mason Beekley Community Library in New Hartford, CT.
Among the works presented, there were magnificent artists of the "Spoken Word", with poems in favor of equality and social justice, among other topics of interest.
