Monday! August 21st – Poet SAM RUSH features! Plus! The SpurtleToySplorts Verbal Flame Challenge!

POETRY FEATURE: SAM RUSH originally hails from South Florida and began writing poems after developing progressive hearing loss and realizing how many words each word could be. Sam is a three-time competitor in the National Poetry Slam, was a 2016 National Poetry Slam Finalist as a member of The House Slam Boston team. Their work has been featured in The Offing, Public Pool, Drunk in a Midnight Choir and on Button Poetry and SlamFind. Sam has spent the last decade working with youth across the U.S. and internationally.

BONUS RUCKUS: The SpurtleToySplorts FLAME CHALLENGE: We’ve got cash prize on the line for the poet, singer, comedian, performer who can verbally torch Worcester’s embarassingly intolerant local blog (the one that rhymes with the name of the challenge, but who’s name will not befoul this lovely blogpost blurb.) We won’t raise their online traffic by linking to their lowest denominator provocateur trash, but we will raise holy ruckus in our championing of those who can dexterously denounce these big gulp guzzling, typing child-trolls, using our mic!

Expect more visual arts, snacks, music and joy as we hope to continue outside on the patio!
