Writing an Artist Spotlight on the Poet Jamaal May

Jamaal May is a Detroit-raised poet who has been described as a ‘rising star’ of American poetry. His debut collection, HUM, has won numerous awards and Jamaal received the Spirit of Detroit Award in 2014. He also co-directs Organic Weapon Arts, a press that publishes a superb range of poetry collections and creates poetry films.
