Press for Spokane Poetry Slam

Sometimes, people write about us.  Sometimes, what they write gets put into newspapers and other people read it.  It’s pretty exciting.  Check out these links:

2014 Spokane Slam Team member Kurt Olson brought down the house during the team’s first preliminary bout at the 2014 National Poetry Slam.  It was so incredible, our friends at Button Poetry posted it to their YouTube channel:
