Upcoming Events (The FB Roster)

by Cole Sarar
Hey folks! Scroll past all the events to hear about some big names that are coming to town, an article I think is great, and a call to arms.

Tonight: Two Chairs Telling: Diego Vazquez & Ann Reay

Thursday: Minnesota SOAP Poetry Slam (U of M)

Friday: Punch Out Poetry: Season Opener! (hosted by yours truly) Please come out and compete or be an audience member.


Dream a Little Dream…at Patrick’s Cabaret

Then Saturday at Midnight: Sleepover Slam III: The Return of the Return.

Monday you get a respite from all the slam with
The Monday Night Comedy Show that teaches us about ourselves.


Voices Merging: Class Clownin Open Mic! (U of M)

Tuesday we’re back to Slam with the
SlamMN! Season Opener!

next Wednesday you have the unique opportunity to take a workshop with Nationally renowned poet Tristan Silverman.
(Make sure you tell them what time would be best for you, as the RSVP is for a large range of times.)

Then next Thursday Night see Tristan with Ben San Del, Jill Bernard, Khary Jackson, and Courtney McLean at the BLB.

I’ll hit you up next week, for events coming up in October.

My friend Lauren Zuniga wrote an article about women in slam, here. It’s an interesting article to me, as someone who is trying to help build more women’s voices in our slam community. It’s a good read, and Zuniga is a brilliant poet besides.
Seriously- watch Girl:Exploded if you want proof.

Next- we’ve got great poets coming to town- keep your ears open and come out and support.
Tristan Silverman is coming into town to do Thadra Sheridan’s amazing new series that brings national talent to the twin cities. Tristan is an organizer and teaching artist as well as an award-winning poet, and YOU have the opportunity to take a workshop from her when she’s in town next Wednesday. The timing is not yet entirely hammered down, so check out the facebook event and let her know when works best for you. It’s supercheap considering what an amazing poet she is, so GET ON THIS. ($10-15, I hear- sliding scale, pay what you can)
Facebook Event

Also- I have word that Jared Paul will be in town in early November!

Finally, I’m looking to do some early October performance dates in outstate MN before my tour with Guante kicks off in mid-October. If you have contacts in Duluth, Mankato, Rochester, or wherever who want a couple of clever, socially aware wordsmiths on their stage or classroom, shoot me a note.
