¡Qué ondas!

Ladies and gentlemen, crazies of all kinds, IT’S SUMMERTIME! That means: one, no school. Two, your flip flops are melting. Three, you are aching for poetry (right!?) and something to do. We cannot buy you new chanclas. HOWEVER, we can offer you this: THREE MORE Youth Spotlight Poetry Slams (the ones in which the youth winner takes home $50!), plus workshops, hilarity, locura, and of course, mucha poesía.

Please help spread the word. I am going to be teaching a workshop the next two Saturdays,
and there is a slam at Bentley’s on the 12th. The workshops are going to be a blast, and of course English / Spanish / Espanglish / any other language is perfectly welcome. The first youth slam went down a couple weeks ago and was a serious success.

We want to see you at these events. Don’t be shy!

Hasta pronto! ~ Logan

Workshops

Held at Every Voice in Action, 2851 North Country Club Road.

Forget boring. This isn’t a class, this isn’t a workout, this is raw writing, reading and performance. Come hear killer poems performed by famous poets from the world over, come to write new poems of your own, revise older poems and learn about performance. Every language and accent welcome. Bring your favorite non-digital writing medium. YOU WILL DIG THIS.

Ocotillo Poetry Slam
Held at Bentley’s, 1730 E Speedway. Every 2nd & 4th Saturday, 7pm.
The slams listed above are Youth Spotlight Slams, which means that there is a $50 dollar prize for the winning poet of 18 years or younger! If you’ve never been to a poetry slam, this is the time to come check one out! It might sound scary at first, but you have to try it at least once, it’s a rush! Come meet and compete with other local poets. Bring three original poems. THIS WILL ALSO BE DUG>
