About Me

Hey there, my name is Eric Odum and I’m currently the Education director, as well as Program Director for One Mic Open, with Twelve Literary Arts.

I was a member of the youth slam team for three years, a coach for 3 years total as well as qualifying for the National Adult Slam Team in 2017.

My inspiration is the world around me, the young people I get to interact with and the amazing artists we get to interact with while doing this work.

I, as of now, have one collection of poetry available, “Unpacking” printed by GTK Press. A second one is in the works now.

I’m a libra, love video games, talking a lot and sometimes sitting in silence with the right people.
