Monday Feb 19th! Manchester NH’s EMILY EASTMAN plus! IRON POET QUALIFIER

POETRY FEATURE: EMILY EASTMAN is a genderqueer poet & organizer who hails from Manchester; New Hampshire’s loudest middle child. A longtime community & staff member of the Slam Free or Die poetry series, they have helped to facilitate countless events & workshops on both a local & national level. They have represented Slam Free or Die at many national tournaments, including the Individual World Poetry Slam (2014, 2015) the Women of the World Poetry Slam (2016, 2017) and the National Poetry Slam (2015, 2016, 2017.) Interests include strong coffee, dismantling the white supremacist cisheteropatriarchy, & spending dinner dates talking about radical softness. Their greatest review to date came as a text from their 11-year-old sister: “Adequate.”

BONUS RUCKUS: We’re looking for a challenger to face current champ ASHLEY WONDER next month. 3 rounds, 2 competitors, 3 poetic concoctions, 3 judges, 3 criteria for scores and one diabolical secret ingredient! Get ready! The band’s gonna get presidential on Monday, with MARK LEIGHTON bringing back facial hair as a symbol of a good leader (credit Mike McGee on that line), snacks and visual arts and open mic and no public school, so we’re hoping to see some teachers in the house, kicking back and enjoying the winter with us!
