Brookliners Featured in 'Equal Magazine'

Brookline native Tera McIntosh and others with local connections were featured in a recent Issue of "Equal Magazine" for their slam poetry.

A local poet—and Pittsburgh Passion football player, and Ph.D. graduate—is in the spotlight again, in the January 2013 issue of Equal Magazine.

Tera McIntosh is featured prominently in the article, "Poetry Out Loud: Voices from Pittsburgh's Slam and Spoken Word Scene," written by Kara Holsopple.

She's not alone. The article also features a number of other locals you might have seen at Cannon Coffee on Open Mic Nights, or during Steel City Slam and Young Steel events.

The article focuses on the importance of poetry, especially in the lives of young people, and how the slam poetry scene continues to evolve in Pittsburgh.

Jude Waldo of Mt. Lebanon and Anna Voelker of North Hills, who both are quoted in the Equal article, began performing with Young Steel when it was created last year. Adriana Ramirez, Slam Master of Steel City Slam and Creative Director of Pittsburgh Poetry Collective, along with McIntosh, helped form Young Steel. Nina Barrone, a poet from Brookline, also appears in the article.
