Today is my anniversary!

One year ago today I first participated in the Albuquerque slam scene as the sacrificial poet at Poetry & Beer.  Two championships, three features, multiple slams and tons of new friendships later, I can hardly believe it!  All I set out to do was to try sharing some of my poems publically, and while things took off in a way I didn’t expect or intend, I’m still enjoying it and still making time for art and words among my many pursuits and commitments.

So come celebrate with me! Next Saturday, March 15th I offer some poems during the Rhythm & Words benefit for the Agora Crisis Center at ArtBar starting at 7:00 p.m.  See Facebook for more info.  No better way to celebrate my anniversary and the momentous Ides of March!Rhythm & Words

I’m in…most likely! ABQ Women of the World Slam Poetry Championship

Hi!  I hope Thanksgiving was a bounteous and restful time for you and yours!  There’s one more slam between now and Friday, but chances are pretty good I’ll be in the lineup this Friday to compete with 9 other women to represent Albuquerque at the international level in March!  Come out this Friday, 7:30 p.m., Outpost Theater in Albuquerque! Click here for more information and tickets!

I made the city slam finals!

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!
