Notes: Credits:
Affectionately known as Uncle Twain, his funky blend of humor and insight has made Twain Dooley a popular part of DC's poetry and storytelling scenes. As founding member of the Modern Urban Griots, he has performed in such places as The Whitney Museum, The National Theater, and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Twain has earned a position on ten nationally competing poetry slam teams and has been the DC/Baltimore slam champion a record three times. His work has been published in a variety of places such as The Drumming Between Us and I Just Hope It's Lethal. Twain enjoys sharing his love of words with students, and is still working on the story of his life, None of This Makes Sense. You can find Twain hosting an open mic at Busboys and Poets or dancing with his wife (fellow poet Gail Danley) and their children.
