• Member of the 2006 National Poetry Slam Championship team
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.
Having toured internationally with such remarkable artists as Andrea Gibson and Buddy Wakefield, as well as opening for The Flobots, Saul Williams and legendary lesbian comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer, Katie has taken her brand of storytelling from coast to coast, proving her fluency in the language of living is universally appreciated.
What the schools are saying:
"Katie was amazing. She’s so personable and talented. The students loved her too. I love how she can be telling a story and then go straight into a poem with such a smooth transition that sometimes you don’t even realize the poem started. All in all, I think we’d love to have her back at some point."
"Katie was amazing as always and the turnout was great. Overall the event was a hit and I am so glad we were able to bring Katie back to our campus! Thank you so much for all that you have helped us with this academic year. I know this isn’t the last time Cascadia and UW Bothell will work with The College Agency and Katie!"
