Jared Paul / Press

“Jared Paul is the watchdog of poetry, a force not unlike a hurricane– a very skinny, loud, sweaty hurricane that wants you to know your life is worth everything and that this planet belongs to us all. ”

Mike McGee, 2003 Individual National Poetry Slam Champ and 2006 Individual World

“Jared Paul is a juggernaut who lives his politics. His work speaks to the political - which is his personal - that he lives with sincere conviction and integrity.”

Michael Cirelli, Executive Director URBAN WORD NYC

“The only thing stronger than Jared Paul’s convictions is his ability to change yours with the craft of his language.”

Sonya Renee, 2004 Individual National Poetry Slam Champion

“Emerson said that character is higher than intellect. What happens when someone has both character and intellect, as well as a sense of conviction that can be described only as humbling? You have made Jared Paul's acquaintance.”

Columbia Recording Artist, Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace

“If the United Nations needed a representative from the Slam/poetry community, we'd send them Jared.”

Buddy Wakefield

“Jared Paul is a firestorm of conviction and flow. In a world long on words and short on action, Jared delivers both.”

Peter Young

“Jared Paul is a stunning performer – staring audiences in the eyes and calling for conscious responses to injustice. His talent at sharing complex ideas through verse should not be missed”
