We are having a super special The People in October: Features are back!!!
While Damien is off in Spokane, WA kickin' all kinds of IWPS butt, we will be hosting some poets from outside of our area and open mic-ing and Slamming!
This event will be a cover slam!
What's a cover slam, you say? It is a slam when you do OTHER PEOPLE's POETRY (or OPP as we call it). The same rules apply except, the poem isn't yours! (of course, you tell us who the author is when you do it.) It's super fun and a way to share some of your favorite writer's work with a room of people!
And we are featuring a good friend: Paulie Lipman out of DENVER!
More about Pauilie:
Paulie Lipman is a former bartender/ bouncer/ record store employee/ Renaissance fair worker/two time National Poetry Slam finalist and a loud Jewish/ Queer/ poet/ writer/performer. His work has appeared in " We Will Be Shelter" (Write Bloody Publishing) as well as The Emerson Review, Drunk in the Midnight Choir, Voicemail Poems, pressure gauge & Prisma (Zietblatt Fur Text & Sprache).
Come out one and all! Bring your favorite poems, a friend's poems, another poet in the room's poems, and let's get artsy!
