Mark Skrzypczak is a 32 year old slam poet. He has been doing it for 10 years and is now the coach for the Rutgers poetry College slam team. He recently performed his piece Katyn at the Dopeness in Jersey City. He started by just competing in an oral interpretation competitions in high school and since then has been writing and performing his original pieces. Hi started by writing poems about any topic that was on his mind but as years progressed he found his focus on writing about his life experiences and growing up with Polish roots. We had the pleasure of witnessing his performance and it was without a doubt moving.
