This is the Split Lipped Love Poems Tour so come on out on Sunday to see these amazing poets. Plus a regular open mic it should be a swell time full of great poetry. 

Ashe is a soon-to-be-graduated theatre major at Stephen F. Austin State University; she is a produced playwright, an actor, and a poet. She's been writing long as she can remember, but found poetry when she most needed it. Her first poetry collection, Belly of the Beast, was published by Words Dance Publishing and her second, Wrong Side of a Fist Fight, is set to come out in July from Where Are You Press. She spends most of her time writing her way out of dark places, and looking to the stars. Ashe has featured in venues across Texas, such as The Standpipe Coffee House in Lufkin, Nacogdoches Literary Readings, and Love Jonz Spoken Jazz, in Duncanville. She has placed first at WriteAboutNow in Houston and has been published in volumes one and two of the Literary Sexts anthologies. She's been doing theatre her whole life, so don't worry--she's not yelling, she's just excited.
