Solo Events

crossoverIn the world of comic books, when two or more titles come together for purposes of telling

a greater narrative than could be told individual, the event is called a crossover. Continuing in that grand tradition, CROSSOVER is a newly formed performance poetry duo consisting of Lauren Bullock and Mikkel Snyder. Combining Southern wit and Midwestern banter, CROSSOVER prides itself on exploring representation and intersectionality through pop culture and personal lens. Formed in response to the drastically changing poetic scene enabled by the internet and desire to share the stories of two mixed nerds, their work aims to foster the next generation of poets. Their first collaborative poetry collection, COMIX(ED), Vol. 1, is available for sale underneath the Shop tab.
