Chace Morris is a poet and emcee with so many accolades you have to take a deep breath before even reading them all. Morris is a 2013 Kresge Literary Fellow, a Rustbelt Poetry Slam champion (twice), who also won both the Detroit Grand Slam and the Midwest Slam back in 2010. Nicknamed “Mic Write,” he’s been a member of four national teams of slam poetry, was featured in our list of “Top 5 Poets in Detroit,” and has read alongside such artists as the U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Tretheway, Talib Kweli, and Saul Williams. He’s also a member of the excellent hip-hop collective Cold Men Young and a writer in residence with the InsideOut Literary Arts Program. Whew.
