Poetry Slam Tonight!

Tonight PDXCRU is hosting a poetry slam at Portland State University, featuring poetry slam champion Phil Long.

There's over $500 in cash prizes, which, as you poets know, is the lifetime salary of most poets. 

Sounds like it's going to be awesome!  If you're a poet, sign up by 6:30.  If you're there to watch the riot, the party starts at 7. 

Have fun!


  1. Seems to me that 500 salary in a lifetime for poets is quite an overestimatation. And that picture of "Jesus" on the poster is just plain weird. But still kind of cool.

  2. There just weren't that many pictures of Jesus in front of a microphone. This one was taken in 1924.

    This event sounds awesome! What a great idea to engage the younglings! But I think that Jesus image is an AVATAR!?
