Stephanie Lask is a spoken word artist, graphic designer and web designer from Virginia Beach, VA. She is a graduate of Norfolk State University receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design in 2005. She has been writing since her earlier years and took her talents to an open mic stage one night, which would open new doors of opportunity for her as a writer. This would also be the start of her as a performer on the local poetry scene. From there, she has performed in tons of local events, as well as getting to travel to spread her words to different audiences. Inspired by music, art, and life experiences, she has built a catalog of poetry that has topics for any crowd. Predominately known for her poems about the state of hip hop music, she has been able to spread that message on platforms she never thought could be reached. She is one of the organizers for a local music and spoken word showcase called Last Tuesdays, which highlights talent from everywhere, and has been going on since April of 2010. As she continues her journey through spoken word, she hopes to inspire people of all ages, to write how they feel without judgement, and most importantly, to express themselves with the medium of their choice.

“We all want that key of life and to be brave enough to use it.” – Stephanie Lask
