Richard Rohr says of Joel Mckerrow, ‘It is to a deeper knowing that Joel appeals, he draws us through a much better window.’
Joel McKerrow is an award winning writer, speaker, educator, creativity specialist and, having performed for hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world, is one of Australia’s most successful, internationally touring, performance poets.
Based out of Melbourne, Australia he is the Artist Ambassador for the aid and development organisation ‘TEAR Australia’ and was the third ever Australian representative at the Individual World Poetry Slam Championships in the USA (2012). He is also invited to speak at conferences throughout the world about the intersection of Creativity, identity formation, spiritual growth and social justice.
You don’t want to miss this powerhouse poet for, as Brian McLaren says, “…he does what poets should do … makes you laugh, think, cry, pray, hope, worship, wonder, and sit back and say, “Ahh, now I see!” In a time when politics, theology, and other important avenues of human intercourse suffer from a flatness of prose and a vacuum of meaning, Joel walks on stage just when we need him, sounding off with all the craft of a first-rate poet and all the verve of a first-rate performer.”
