Portland Poetry Slam Feature

  • TIny's Coffee 2031 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

The first person to introduce me to Portland Poetry Slam was Brit Shostak, one of the best performing poets I know, who I met in Phoenix almost a decade ago and who told me great things about the slam. A few years later, when I first got to Portland in 2013, I got to experience the event myself. In the years since I've heard incredible poets, local and visiting, perform at Portland Poetry Slam. I got to see three or four venues that the slam called home, met old and new friends there. It was also the place where I started reading my poetry out loud to more than two-three people in the room. So I am all sorts of excited about doing a feature there this coming Sunday. Come out, read your poetry at the open mic or the slam and I'll read you a few poems too. Let's do this!
