Since 2010, Juneau poets have been taking the stage at open mics and poetry slams hosted by the Woosh Kinaadeiyi arts non-profit organization. Here’s an audio postcard from this year’s grand slam event on Friday, Oct. 18th. Among a multitude of volunteers and talented performers, we’ll hear voices from poets Ziggy, Jacqueline Boucher, Nathan Block, Woosh Kinaadeiyi president and co-founder Christy Namee Eriksen, and co-host Dee Jay Derego.
Open mics and poetry slams happen every third Friday at 6:30 p.m. Locations vary.
