Jazz Jam and Poetry Slam

Bellingham’s iDiom Theater is starting some late-night events and one of them is a series of poetry slams. On the last Friday of every month, Tobias Childs will host the Jazz Jam and Poetry Slam, reviving a series started by Glenn Apollo Hergenhahn-Zhao more than a decade ago. This triumphant return will include a live jazz band from WWU, a featured poet each month, and a cash prize!

On Friday, January 30, 2015, Jam and Slam features Tim Sanders, a Seattle-based poet, playwright and graphic designer whose writing and designs have appeared in The Stranger, HENHOUSE magazine, ACT Theatre, Yes! Magazine, and 826 Seattle’s Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. His works for stage have been produced in Seattle, Chicago, New York and other places unknown to him. He also helped put on the original Jazz Jam & Poetry Slam with Glenn and others.

The JJPS will offer a $100 CASH PRIZE to the winning poet who, along with the runner-up, also receives a spot in the coveted Grand Slam Finale on April 17.
8 poets, 3 rounds, 1 Tim Sanders & 1 Winner who, as customary, is chosen by the audience.

There is a student discount and also still slots available if you want to try and compete for the 100 big ones. See more on this and other iDiOM late night events on Facebook.
