Theresa Davis is a mother of three and a teacher for over 20 years. She reclaimed her love for poetry 11 years ago after the loss of her father. She has since emerged as a nationally recognized slam poet, youth advocate and teacher of poetry. Davis co-founded the ArtAmok Slam Team and has competed in national and regional competitions culminating in 2011 when she won the Women of the World Poetry Slam Competition.
In recognition of her years of activism on behalf of Atlanta’s youth, she was honored by the City of Atlanta with a proclamation, declaring May 22, “Theresa Davis Day in Atlanta”.
In May 2013, her first full collection of poems entitled “After This We Go Dark” was published by Sibling Rivalry Press.
