Spit/WRITE is thrilled to invite you to the final competition for the city-sanctioned 2015 Portland Youth Poet Laureate competition. One talented winner will receive the yearlong, inaugural title AND get a national, publishing and distribution book deal from a NYC-based publisher AND get a regional book tour. These 12 Poet Ambassadors - selected as finalists from 35 applicants - are a racially diverse group of ages 14-18, from public and private schools, and from varying socioeconomic backgrounds. These young leaders truly represent the Portland region! Over the next year, you will see each of them given a platform to have their words, voices and ideas invited into public, adult spaces around the Portland region. (Learn more about these poets at www.SpitWRITE.com) NOTE: Spit/WRITE comes from the poet's performance term "spitting in the mic." We offer year-round writing and performance workshops that focus on nurturing youth potential, civic engagement and creative expression.

Long-time DIY event producer Noah Mickens teaches the tricks of the no-budget promotion trade. Advance tickets $25 - register here http://www.eventbrite.com/e/jamballah-nw-a-bellydance-and-fusion-festival-aug-8-10-2014-tickets-9619796069 Admission at the door $35 "I've been producing shows in this town for 14 years on a shoestring budget. In so doing, I've learned a thing or two about how shows work. I've worked as a nightclub booker, run a street team, interacted with all kinds of media and press, toured the nation, sold out plenty of venues all over the place; and worked in various capacities with national and international acts, unknown local artists, and everything in between. It's been crazy. People have often suggested that I should teach workshops, and I've always thought it sounded like a good idea, but you know how these things go. Always so much going on. At any rate, now I'm going for it. This one will focus on Promotion! Street teams! Posters! Social Networks! Press! Venues! You've got this event - you need to be handing this money to the artists at the end of it - what happens in between is strange voodoo my friends, and I will do my best to impart the arcane knowledge I have acquired at great expense to my soul and lower back." - N. *Difficulty/What to bring: All levels welcome to this lecture class! Please bring a pad and pen for notes, and of course always bring your water bottle!* http://www.facebook.com/events/816538285037323/
