Katie Wirsing has never been big on small talk. Or backward thinking.
Firmly believing the mouth is a speakerbox to whatever makes your heart sing most; she has opera lungs and a getaway car for anyone willing to pick up and move forward.
Never afraid of the difficult truths, Katie has toured her way to stages around the world speaking on issues from gender, love, sexuality, and spirituality to jello wrestling and her Grandmother’s love of hot dogs.
Member of the 2006 National Poetry Slam Championship team and Denver representative at the Women of the World Poetry Slam, Katie’s work has been featured on college campuses across the country, NPR, the BBC and countless local radio stations. She performed as the opening act for The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and AquaGirl, a queer woman’s festival, as well as being the poetic voice on a national commercial.
This event is free and open to Beloit College students only.
