Calling All Poets

The Island Voices poetry performance series continues at Che’s Lounge on Wednesday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. All Island poets are invited. The event is slated to continue weekly through the summer, with a roster including spoken word performers, rappers and freestylers, slam poets, singer-songwriters, and free verse and traditional form poets.

Host Ben Williams spent the past four months travelling the U.S. An Island graduate, he deferred Reed College and left the Island in mid-January. Along the way he tied for first at a poetry slam in the Tucson Poetry Festival and, through a combination of luck and poetry, he arrived safely home in May.
