We aren’t the only game in the country, or even in town.  Check out these great resources for slam in Spokane and the Pacific Northwest.

Spokane Poetry Slam Facebook Page:  You like us!  You really like us!

Broken Mic Facebook Page:  Broken Mic is our sister event–a great performance poetry open mic that happens every Wednesday at Neato Burrito (827 W 1st). If you’re going to be our Facebook friend, you should be theirs, too.  Or else…

Big Tree Arts, Inc.:  Big Tree Arts is the non-profit group that organizes slam poetry in Boise, Idaho. We have a crush on them.  They’re just adorable!

Portland Poetry Slam:  According to one Spokane poet, “Portland is where vagabonding goes to die.”  I don’t know about that, but a lot of world champion poets live there.  They put on a hell of a show.  Check them out! (The link is to their Facebook page.  If they have a website, I can’t find it.  But I’m not looking too hard.  If you know what it is, let me know.)

Seattle Poetry Slam: Seattle is where the cool Spokanites wanted to go when I was in college.  It’s still pretty cool, and the poets there are pretty spectacular.

Vancouver Poetry Slam:  Let me just say it:  I love poets from Vancouver, BC.  They blow me away with poems I never had the slightest idea could even exist.
