Mazaré Rogers

About the Author Mazaré Rogers

Mazaré Rogers is a spoken word poet hailing from Durham, NC who describes herself as raw honey, “a teaspoon of brutal truth fresh from the comb--bold and thick with sweet.” She received her writing training from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where she studied English and Creative Writing. As an educator and conference speaker, she delights in leading workshops that help writers identify their unique literary voice and cultivate their technical writing skills. To that end, she co-founded the poetry writing group Poets’ Ink at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO where she earned her Master of Divinity (2016). This performance poet has since moved to Washington, DC where she serves as the Community Life Coordinator at the church Grace Downtown. There she leads the Cultural Intelligence ministry, guiding groups in becoming more culturally aware and committed to loving those who are different. Mazare is thrilled about the recent release of her spoken word album, Raw Honey, which features poetry about faith, the African-American experience, her love for words, and more.
