Say What?! Feature originally from Miami, Jonkel found an outlet for his trauma in theater and creative writing.

Guiding these young peer educators, he seeks to empower them to make a positive impact in their communities. A veteran of the US Armed Forces as well as a veteran of the poetry slam scene, Jonkel most recently took 4th place in the 2023 Blackberry Peach Festival National Poetry Slam. His latest project is "Trauma Monsters: A Collection of Poetry," which is available on all major platforms.

Produced by Wits End Poetry. All poetry styles welcome. Coffee Underground. Doors open at 7:00 pm.
