April features saucy Salvadorean-Chicana, Milta Ortiz, who describes herself as a modern day She-ra battling macho-isms with a wink of an eye. A recent graduate of San Francisco State’s creative writing program, Milta’s poetry has been published in several literary journals including Cipatli and Coyolxuaqui. Also on the bill is Tshaka Campbell. Originally from London and of Jamaican decent, Tshaka was a member of the 2004 Nuyorican Poetry Café National Slam Team. He has been writing and performing his poetry for over ten years and believes himself to be a reincarnated West African griot.
