Hi folks, it’s Cole, writing from Oakland, CA. I’ve been supporting the slam poets competing in the Individual World Poetry Slam at Berkeley. I’ve been taking notes, and hope to be blogging about this and other things, but I want to link to the photos I’ve uploaded from the bouts I’ve attended thus far. Click the links to get a look at the rest of the photos from these events!
Almost 1,000 pictures in two days! Cross your fingers, we’ve got two Minnesotan poets on the final stage tonight (out of 10 finals stage poets), Sierra DeMulder and Khary Jackson (6 is 9). Next summer Saint Paul will be hosting the National Poetry Slam- bringing in some of these, the nation’s best spoken word poets.
