The Vancouver poetry house presents feature poet, Rachel Rosenberg.
Rachel Rosenberg is a 27-year-old lawyer/recent graduate of Lewis & Clark Law School and an alumnus of Kenyon College. She has been writing poetry for 19 years and performing it for the last three. Her poems have been published in a number of online and print journals, most recently in The Leaning House Press and The Sparrow Ghost Collective Anthology of Poetry: Vol.’s 1 and 2. Her love of words is intriguingly electrifying.
Rachel Rosenberg is a superhero; mild mannered lawyer by day, kickass poet by night. She swoops down onto stages throwing words of razor sharp wit, screaming her battle cry of “more pretzels, please!” Her utility belt is full of funny, sexy, and awkward-y. Meet Rachel Rosenberg; meet…Poetic Justice!
As always, there will be an open mic and two-round poetry slam, (3 min) where poets accumulate points to qualify for the Van Slam team.
Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.
Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM at the door, it’s cash ONLY.
Get there early if you want a seat or want to slam
