In 2002, Wanda Darden entered the spoken word community of performance poetry donning the stage name Phantom Knoet, The Knowledge Dropping Poet. Phantom Knoet captured the spotlight winning local, state, and national lyrical competitions. Most notably, working on the final leg of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network Tour of 2004. “The presidential election of 2004 was highly visible in the urban community. The tour allowed me the golden opportunity to utilize my voice to promote social responsibility in youth. Whether watching eyes brighten or seeing tears fall from the eyes of listeners as I speak, I am fulfilled.” Phantom Knoet’s written works are as powerful as her performances. She received four Editor’s Choice Awards from the International Library of Poetry; in addition, JMW Publishing has published her works in two poetry anthologies. This dynamic, tenacious woman is focused on promoting literacy through spoken word and increasing business for DYA. From the classroom to the stage, Phantom Knoet masters her abilities. Unabashedly she contends, “Listen! I have the answers to the unasked questions.”

2013 Phantom Knoet will be touring Europe for the first tim! Watch out!
