Meaca Moore is a performance poet, writer, public speaker, musical artist, host, and freelance instructor. Spoken word is Meaca’s first love. She has been writing poetry as a means of survival since age 12 and performing since age 15, first inspired to create in order to release personal trauma from a tumultuous childhood. Following high school, she was recruited as an artist for the University of Wisconsin- Madison under the First Wave program, an innovative urban arts full-tuition scholarship community, the only one of its kind. Meaca has been privileged to travel the country sharing her poetry and various written works, including participating in various poetry slams, like the Rustbelt Regional Slam, where she placed 1st in Individuals. The focus of her work is building hope, mercy, and self-reflection for a dark world that often lacks all three.
