Who is Lacey Roop?
Searching for an interesting video to post, I ran across Lacey Roop. Who is Lacey Roop? Born and raised in Mississippi, Roop has become one of Austin, Texas’ biggest billie-bad-asses. A nationally recognized touring poet, she placed 6th in the 2011 Women of the World Poetry Slam (WOWPS), was the Austin, TX Individual World Poetry Slam (IWPS) representative, and has been a two-time member of the renowned Austin Poetry Slam Team(APS). She is the author of three self-published chapbooks and one
full length collection, And Then Came the Flood, published by Timbermouse.
This is one of her earlier videos, a great introduction to a promising poet. Check her our on YouTube and on her website at www.laceyroop.com.
