Teré Fowler-Chapman describes herself simply as a poet, but believes that role involves “wearing a lot of hats” in the 21 century. She is a writer, teacher, lecturer, performer and organizer. Teré founded Words on the Avenue, a unique community open mic night for poetry, and is the first African-American Executive Director for the Tucson Poetry Festival. This story attempts to capture a snapshot of Teré’s busy life and beautiful words.
