Motion In Poetry, the first book of poetry by a hip hop artist in Canada, was published by Women's Press in May 2002. Now, after much anticipation, Motion and Women's Press release her accompanying CD, Motion in Poetry: The Audio Xperience; chock-full of gritty, live performance, spoken verse, and pulsing Hop Hop lyrics. Blazing with twenty-two tracks plus her bonus live CBC Poetry Face Off win, The Audio Xperience rocks the mic and serves up a progressive, edgy, literary feast for the senses. MOTION is an emcee, griot rhyme-slinger and a poet.

About the Author:

Wendy Brathwaite is a Canadian Spoken Word poet and Hip Hop artist as well as an ambassador for literacy. Her poetry is intended to move and inspire and equally spawn a new interest in reading for youth who share her same passion for Hip Hop. She has released two singles and a vinyl EP and has been published extensively on CD anthologies. Brathwaite's journey includes being a radio host and educator.

Review:

"The eternal wail of woman story permeates the lyrics of Motion's poetry. Her seat is Toronto but her vision ranges across the expanse of the African Diaspora, and like the shamaness Madame Laveau she incants tales of loss, rage, sorrow, healing, love, and power. Motion's work has the ethereal quality of a Dionne Brand and the immediacy of an Amiri Baraka. Thus, in the tradition of her ancestor poets, Motion uses poetry to transform the world. For me, it was sheer joy to read this volume." -- Afua Cooper, author of Copper Woman and Other Poems and The Hanging of Angélique
