Do you want to qualify to go to the Individual World Poetry Slam? Do you want to see great poets do poetry? Either way, come to the slam this Wednesday! It’s going to be a fun night!
Fitz is a performance poet based out of Spokane Washington where they have made it their mission to fall in love with strangers through the written and spoken word. They were a member of the 2015 and 2016 Spokane National Poetry Slam teams and are representing Spokane in the 2016 Individual World Poetry Slam. Their work has appeared in numerous local publications such as Riverlit, Heavyedit, Love and Outrage and the local anthology “I am a town”. Other than hosting and performing in local slams they have featured as a poet in Spokane LGBT Pride, numerous social justice events, opened for traveling punk bands and also opened for queer poet legend Andrea Gibson. In their “spare time” they run a weekly poetry open mic called “Broken Mic”, roll around on sidewalks with local cats and practice changing the world through compassion and actually laughing out loud. Their chapbook “Chocolate Cake: and Other Metaphors for my Feelings” is currently available at Aunties Bookstore.
