ABOUT THE FEATURE: Darrien Case
Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and considers his home one of the most slept-on cities in the U.S. Darrien is currently working on his BA in Liberal Arts – Creative Writing and a minor in business. Since his first public performance at Uptown Arts Bar three years ago, Darrien’s poetry has been featured on 41 Action News, Voyage ATL Magazine and even TEDx. Because his first love was music, Darrien consistently incorporates songs into his poetry. He represented KC at the 2018 National Poetry Slam and made the final stage with his team at
the 2019 Rustbelt Regional Slam.
Case is a 10-time KCPS champion while also being awarded “Best Newcomer” in 2018 and “Best Slam Artist” in 2019 by the Music and More Poetry Foundation
