Poets, Powerpoint, & a Delightful Misuse of Company Time

I am so excited to be part of an upcoming event taking place at the West of Lenin theatre space in the heart of Seattle's Fremont neighborhood (203 N. 36th Street) on July 19 beginning at 7:30. Poets, Powerpoint, & a Delightful Misuse of Company Time is about mashing up poetry with a series of twenty slides. Each slide will be be visible for 20 seconds, during which time the presenter will be talking/poetizing/reading some sort of written text to accompany each slide. Psssst! Think pecha kucha. 

Whatever happens during each of the 6 minute and 40 second presentations (by Kathleen Flenniken, Keri Healey, Peter Pereira, Molly Tenenbaum, Barbara Earl Thomas, and I), you will be entertained, amused, and then fed copious amounts of office food (Costco sheet cake, crudites with ranch dip, and the like); there will be a no-host bar before the after, so you can get snookered and guffaw through the entire series.

Over here at BP, we've been tirelessly toiling to make our slideshow and accompanying poetic complements the best they can be. Here's a sneak preview of some of the slides you might just hear me wax eloquently about during my presentation:

Laika, the endearing dogma-naut 

Newton's 3rd Law of Motion Carries the Day

Tickets are available for $30 via Brown Paper Tickets, but do not delay as the theatre can only hold 80 people. 
This event benefits Humanities Washington. Hope to see you there!
