Corbin Louis

Corbin Louis is a poet and performer from Seattle. At age 13 Corbin found his voice in rap and spoken word. By 2008 he became the Seattle Youth Slam Champion in a citywide competition. He spent the next 15-years in a frenzied haze, recording albums and chopping up videos for the sake of agony and dead friends and joy. He is an MFA graduate of the University of Washington Bothell. Corbin’s work has been featured in BAX, Atticus Review, and The Visible Verse Film Festival and more. His art is rooted in a radical honesty intended to question repressive norms, such as the stigmas of mental illness and criminalization of drugs. Corbin’s text/image is a pickaxe meant to cut reality open at the nerve and examine the findings. This way understanding becomes empathy. As long as people can feel something, there’s a chance we might live to see a few decent hours.
