Poetry World Series Seattle 2018

Emceed by the incomparable John Roderick. Two teams of award-winning poets including Bill Carty, E. J. Koh, Keetje Kuipers, Fernando Perez, and Melissa Stein take turns batting at topics pitched to them by the audience. Fastballs, curveballs, knuckleballs: these poets won’t know what’s coming next.

Eminently qualified umpires will score each batter’s reading, and the winning team takes the series title. Book sales and signing will follow the reading. Bring a topic to pitch to the poets!
