"I thought her voice was so amazing. I liked how her voice was a little raspy, and it was really unique. I wasn't nessacarly a fan of the type of music she sang but it was still a great performance. I was inspired by her love and passion for…"
"Like many others, I had never seen a performance poet until I saw Sierra DeMulder. To be honest, coming into the performance, I wasn't expecting much. I was nicely surprised. I thought that somehow, even though we didn't personally know…"
"I absolutely loved Sierra DeMulder's performance. The way she uses such in-depth imagery and metaphor in such a brief piece is amazing and so powerful. I had seen her previously live and many times through Youtube, but she found a way to blow…"
"Joelle's presentation was one of my favorites of the past week. She was funny, honest, imaginative, twisted, spontaneous, and I loved every second of her presentation. To be honest, I was a little freaked out by her extensive on how to torture…"
"Don't get me wrong, the Sports Panel did an excellent job in explaining what they do for their jobs and how they do it. However, my expectations were let down when I saw that they did not really go in depth when it came to talking about the…"
"Out of all the students who presented Wednesday, I would have to say that Courtney Robb's speech on the freedom to twerk in public places inspired me the most. Ever since twerking originated from the depths of New Orleans, I have always…"
"Although all three presenters did a wonderful job, the writer who inspired me the most was Mr. Dawson. His writing was very clear and easy to follow throughout and was a powerful narrative. His experiences with his father had me drawing constant…"
"I genuinely enjoyed Sierra DeMulder's performance. As opposed to traditional poems that often seem to be vague descriptions of things largely unknown to anyone but the author, her poems were almost a rally, an energetic call to arms. The poems…"
"Mr. Hays' piece was the most inspiring to me today. Hearing his story of living in Humboldt park next to a crackhouse and his adventures and the unique characters who he happened to be living around opened up a new perspective on the…"
"It was really cool hearing from an established writer/teacher about their book, life, and generally how to write. I really enjoyed enjoying learning how to write through Geoff Herbach's presentation while being entertained. Its an…"
"Adam Bieda inspired me the most. It's pretty amazing that he would be able to go up on stage in front of hundreds of his peers and make fun of himself like that. Adam really can laugh at himself and that is a great quality that…"
"I'm usually not a fan of her style of music but I thought she was great. Her music was good and she was very natural in both dealing with kids and their questions, and in the performance of her music and teaching us about it. It was…"
"Nick Karstones inspired me the most today. Telling people private information, especially when concerning one's sexuality is never easy. As he put it himself, by telling the truth he exposed himself to possible ridicule and risked being judged…"
"I would just like to point out how incredibly fortunate our school is to host an event like Writers Week! I know, everyone is constantly saying something to that effect but I don't think it ever truly sunk in for me until recently. Not too long…"
"I really, really enjoyed Daphne Willis's performance! I was fortunate enough to be seeing her for my second time this year! She was incredible last year but I could definitely tell she still improved a lot! Just that fact in and of itself is…"
"I think Andrea Nicholson probably inspired me the most out of all the presenters on Friday, and I really liked the fluency and sincerity in her voice. She inspired me just to remember that I shouldn't worry so much about what other people think…"
I was so impressed by how in sync these performers were. When Miss Berdick told me they put together this entire show in 6 weeks, I was stunned. Not many people realize how much work goes into a theatrical performance and I applaud the entire cast!
Today I had the opportunity to watch the Fermilab Physics Slam second period. Going into Writer's Week today, I was expecting a very fun, quick explanations of physics, maybe from some young science guys. I was taken aback by the two very established and professional looking Physicians that I heard from today. It was clear that they were physicians, not performance speakers, because of their often monotonous and scientific monologues. I enjoy the male physician's monologue a little better then the womens, beause he used some props that helped explain his point to me. Though it was kind of the Fermilab physicians to take their time to come and speak to us today, I feel as thought their speeches went over our heads a bit.
