Poet, host, platform provider, and poetry promoter are just a few ways one can describe the Louisianan born Rebecca Dupas. A Marylander with undeniable southern hospitality, Rebecca is a narrative poet who has a knack for speaking on personal convictions and experiences. Dupas has been acting in this multifaceted capacity since 2000, but she began her roots on the Baltimore poetry scene during her freshman year at Towson University. Since her initial debut, Rebecca has gone on to build a one-woman production company, A Dose of Dupas. On the constant quest for upward mobility, Rebecca transformed from poet to host early on in her poetry career when she became the co-host for Warm Wednesdays, noted for being the longest running weekly open-mic venue. No longer co-hosting Warm Wednesdays, her current hosting/co-hosting repertoire consists of VERBATIMondays, the first venue founded by A Dose of Dupas, Coffee & Critiques, The Healing Space, Busboys and Poets: Hyattsville, and Body of Work. No stranger to challenge, Rebecca also teamed up with a major food chain in 2013, Applebee’s, to host Talk to Me Tuesdays. Leaving Talk to Me Tuesdays to further broaden her horizons, Rebecca went on to produce and perform in the poetry collective “Come On Son!” Rebecca is not hosting poetry workshops, facilitating writing webinars and hosting open mic events in additon to featuring at events nationally. In addition to her accolades, Rebecca has released three poetry CDs, appeared on Centric’s Lyric Café, served as the host of Onemic.tv Online, and released her first book of poetry, The Exchange.
