ADVOCATE OF WORDZ (http://www.wendyanguloproductions.com/featured-artists/advocate-of-wordz/) Advocate of Wordz is an acclaimed Performing Poet, Actor, Comedian, Teacher , Film Director and 2014 BRIO Award Winner . He is a resident artist with Lincoln Center and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. His work has been written about and featured in many major publications including the LA Times, Fox News, Univision & PBS. He has a published book of poetry entitled “Advocate Of Wordz: A book of poetry and other creative nonsense that is imperative to your life,” which is available on Amazon. In August 2014 he lead his first writing and performance workshop titled “Summer of Wordz” where seven writers spent the summer working on new poems, further developing their stage presence, and crafting together a show that was honest to their voice. The workshop culminated with a sold-out show at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe August 23, 2014. The 2015 Summer Of Wordz workshop is currently in its developing stage.
