IN-Q is a National Poetry Slam Champion, multi-platinum songwriter, and world-renowned keynote speaker, named on Oprah Winfrey’s SuperSoul 100 list of the world’s most influential thought leaders.

Contemplating universal issues of love, loss, forgiveness, transformation, and belief, Inquire Within shines a light on our lives and provides a wholly unique and dynamic lens through which to think about ourselves and our world. Rhythmic. Original. Authentic. Inspiring. A journey to the center of the soul. Inquire Within is a provocative and entertaining debut from an award-winning poet. You’ll never look at poetry the same way again.
