This week, while the Individual World Poetry Slam is happening in Spokane, we will be hosting an Open Slam! Bring your experimental shit, your “I would never do this at a Slam” shit, your newest of the new shit, your prop penalty over the time limit shit. Because it’s an open slam and we can do whatever we want!

About Our Feature

“Shanna Alden was raised by the wild beasts of the great north, and has spent many years mastering the art of masquerading as a human. Sometimes Shanna writes poems with such force that buildings crumble and the tell-tale howl of the wild beasts of the north, as they show their appreciation, can be heard on the surface of the moon.” – Isaac Grambo
