March Featured Poet: Tripp Fontane
Dayton native and member of the Underdog Academy Artistic Collective, Tripp Fontane, has been slowly but surely creating a name for himself throughout the country. In recent years, Tripp represented Ohio across the country and represented the country across borders. Coming from humble beginnings, Tripp uses his life experience to paint a very unique picture of his atmosphere and his upbringing. Making tactful use of transparency and vulnerability; no topic is off limits. His gritty content and smooth delivery have both made him a fan favorite. From community work to event coordinating, Tripp Fontane relentlessly uses his gifts to benefit the minds and everyday lives of the people. You’re always in for a one-of-a-kind experience!
