Poetry Open Mic
Poetry Open Mic

SoulFood Poetry Night is curated by Michael Dylan Welch and Tanya McDonald, and has been running since July of 2006. We ask one featured reader to select someone else to read with them. This process echoes the sense of community and connection that is central to SoulFood Books, brings in new voices, and helps to create harmony or contrast in our reading series. Featured readers start shortly after 7:00 p.m. After we have a break to enjoy the bookstore, its art gallery, and especially its café, we have an open-mic reading where we invite you to share your poetry. Our featured readers are mostly from the greater Seattle area, but we welcome poets from farther afield as well. More info: http://sites.google.com/site/soulfoodpoetrynight

Whether she’s calling out corrupt bankers, Monsanto, or no-good boyfriends the 1970s punk spirit of Tom Petty and Patti Smith pulsates in these songs, ensuring the next generation of blues-infused rock and roll. “Ultimately my intention is to uplift and inspire people,” Laura muses. “Life is short. There’s no need to spend it following orders and not doing what you love. My mission is to show people that, yes, it can be done. We can do what we love.”
