For those of you that often read these updates, you know about the avid use of CAPS LOCK and bold text intended to DRAW YOUR ATTENTION AND REMIND YOU ABOUT POETRY THINGS. Alas, this month doesn't require such ploys. No jokes, anecdotes, or silly rouses will waste your time this month. All you need is the following paragraph:
At the two upcoming Big Tree Arts events, Slam of Steel on Wednesday 16, and Slam deLux on Monday 21, the featured poet will be Chris August, a man that is the current reigning champion of the Individual World Poetry Slam. If you come to these events, you will see a performance by a man that is literally the current reigning best slam poet in the world. I'll see you there.
