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.
