Feature poet Katie Manning @ SFYS Open Mic in Provo – Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017

Provo Poetry and Speak for Yourself Open Mic are pleased to present feature poet Katie Manning from San Diego!

Katie Manning is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Whale Road Review and an Associate Professor of Writing at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. Her full-length poetry collection, Tasty Other, won the 2016 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award. Find her at  www.katiemanningpoet.com. This upcoming August 17, Thursday evening from 7:30pm-9:00pm, Manning will travel through Enliten Cafe as the Speak for Yourself Open Mic hosts a night of conversation and poetry.

“Tasty Other is a stunning collection where the surreal feels terribly real—Manning’s dream poems about pregnancy and motherhood are funny, frightening, and absurd—which resembles parenthood perfectly. Manning’s voice invites us into her subconscious and makes us feel at home there. Tasty Other is a must read.” —J. Bruce Fuller, Author of Flood

Manning visits Speak for Yourself Open Mic as a guest of Provo Poetry. The reading and open mic are open to the general public.

Saturday Night Slam Series in Provo, September 3, 2016 from 5 – 7pm

snssThe Saturday Night Slam Series in conjunction with the BYU English Society presents the The Final(s) Slam!

Dates vary, but the slams are about once a month and held on campus. Check their Facebook Events page for details. 

The this Saturday Night Slam is September 3, 2016 at 5pm and will be held at The Wall at the Wilkinson Center. 1151 Wilkinson Student Center in Provo.

Entry fee is one original Haiku. 16 people will be randomly selected to present during our intermission.

Poetry performed should be acceptable for a general audience, i.e PG-13. To sign up you can email saturdaynightslamseries@gmail.com or contact them via their Facebook page.

The format is slightly different than other slams. Rather than judges holding score cards after each performance, the randomly selected judges keep notes throughout the evening and then meet together at the end (during the head-to-head haiku championship round) to decide the winners.
