Monica's favorite part of performance when she isn't doing it herself is coaching other writers to get on stage and share their art. Whether in classrooms or at Creative Writing Camp, Monica can coach the stage fright out of anyone (well, almost anyone).
Since discovering Write About Now, one of Houston's many slam poetry communities, you can find Monica on this stage at least once a year, primarily during the summer while she teaches in the Creative Writing Camp. This stage is full of welcoming and loving people, and anyone looks good under the lights at Avant Garden.

Monica always performs in high heels. She adopted this rule of performance when she was eighteen, and hasn't looked back. She is available for readings, choreopoem tastings, and open mic hosting.
