S.C. Says Named Visiting Poet for 2023 Paul K. Bergan Poetry Festival

Andre Bradford, a.k.a. S.C. Says, is an Austin-based slam poet who has been performing slam poetry since 2013. He's toured and featured at venues and universities across the country, and his work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Write About Now, “The Edge” radio, The Culture Trip, and Blavity. He is a two-time Austin Poetry Slam Champion, the 2022 Texas Grand Slam Champion, and the author of the poetry collection Golden Brown Skin. He also once popped a bag of popcorn without burning a single kernel, which is arguably one of his greatest achievements.
His poetry covers a gamut of topics ranging from being mixed race to social justice to mental health awareness to never settling in relationships. Slam poetry is an art form he loves due to its raw vulnerability and its ability to cultivate transparency and dialogues in many different walks of life.

The Poetry Festival will begin Thursday evening, April 13, with an “open mic” followed by the ever-popular Poetry Slam featuring original pieces presented by students and judged by their peers. The celebration will continue Friday morning with a poetry reading by S.C. Says, followed by a workshop with him in the afternoon.

We look forward to hosting this remarkable poet and to being blown away by the talent of our students at Foxcroft’s annual celebration of the wonder and power of words!
