Hi! Happy Friday the 13th! Much to my surprise, I made the finals for the Albuquerque city slam championship and the chance to complete for a spot in the Individual World Poetry Slam in Spokane, WA!
Come out and root for me and my other fabulous competitors next Saturday, September 21, at ArtBar in downtown Albuquerque (Gold & 2nd). Doors open at 6:30 and admission is $7 ($2 for club members, and under 21s permitted with parent or guardian).
This city’s slam poetry talent is super sick. Sacrifice poets are local poetry giants Jessica Helen Lopez and David Maile, and event is hosted by the eminent Don McIver. I share the competition stage with ridiculous poets like Sara Roman and Jesus Lucero — also local slam champs Brooke von Blomberg, Mercedez Holtry, Rich Boucher, Damien Flores, Zachary Kluckman, Emily Bjustrom, and Gigi Bella!
Not too bad for someone who’s only been slamming for a few months! 🙂
See you there!
