The Spoken Word Jamboree kicks off the festival officially with feature poet Sara Brickman from Seattle. All teams will be invited to perform a one-minute intro poem to tell us more about themselves and their school.
The Jamboree provides all participating poets a chance to meet each other outside of a competition setting. It’s also where all the teams will register. Poets and coaches will receive artist passes that allow them free access to all Hullabaloo events. There will be a brief orientation and then the poetry will begin. However, this is a public event. You don’t need to be on a participating team to attend. Don’t be shy. Come on down and help us start this festival right!

She has been a featured artist at the Bumbershoot Music Festival, Le Poussion Rouge, and countless readings and poetry slams across North America. A member of the 2011 and 2012 Seattle Poetry Slam teams and three time finalist at the Seattle Grand Slam, Sara works at the literary arts center Richard Hugo House, and has taught poetry, performance, and creative non-fiction at the Bent Writing Insititute, Richard Hugo House, and elsewhere.
