Poetry slammers converge in downtown Spokane each month throughout the year to sling their best verses behind the mic, but this month things are getting serious. The annual Spokane Poetry Slam Finals features eight local poem slammers competing to represent the Lilac City at the National Poetry Slam competition in Denver this August. Audience members of all ages can hear spine-tingling performances of original works by the top slam poets in the city: Fitz, Jack Siebel, Misty Lynn, Neko, Devin Devine, Sydney Stuckey, Zack Graham and Luke Grayson. Four of these poets will be named to Spokane’s 2017 national team, and the slam grand champion will represent our city at the Individual World Poetry Slam in October, this year being hosted right here in Spokane. As organizers have stated, if you go to just one slam a year, this is the night not to miss.
