What to Expect
Lots of laughs, I like to tell stories about how my poems came about. I talk about my struggles as an author and spoken-word artist, real-life experiences that molded me. I'm very relatable, open-minded down to earth. My audience always feels connected to me. I have been told that my story is very inspiring to people.
Dani Skye was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri, in University City and developed a passion for poetry at 13-years-old. While attending Benedict College, Skye became intrigued by the spoken word scene and performed with a literary group on campus, BCARTI.
She has performed in Columbia, South Carolina, Detroit, Michigan, Cleveland and Cinncinati, Ohio.
Fast forward 14 years later....9 books, 12 features, and one showcase, "Introducing Dani Skye" under her belt...Skye is a not someone to sleep on. She is well on her way!
She also hosts a weekly podcast "Open Letter" under the DSE Network, every Saturday 12-3pm on (link hidden). Skye also hosts a monthly open mic, "Smokin Da Mic" every 3rd Saturday of the month.
