ABOUT THE SLAM
Tonight is a HOODIE QUALIFIER! What is a hoodie slam, you ask? Every year, Rain City prints one and only one hoodie. You get that hoodie by qualifying in a hoodie qualifier, there the top three move on to our Hoodie Championship on August 23rd, a fierce head-to-head battle in which sixteen poets enter and ONLY ONE LEAVES (with a hoodie).
ABOUT THE FEATURED POET
Rachel Greene’s poems have made many people cry, some laugh, and inspired some to have long, thoughtful conversations. Rachel is a founding member of Old Growth Poetry Collective. She represented Olympia Peoples’ Mic at the 2017 Women of the World Poetry Slam, and three times at the Cascadia Regional Poetry Slam. Rachel graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2015 where she worked as a peer writing tutor and was published in Evergreen’s literary journal, Vanishing Point. Rachel’s work touches the heart of social and environmental issues and she uses her poems as tools for advocacy. Her poetic activism was featured in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. She is excited to be representing Olympia at the National Poetry Slam for a second time this August in Denver, CO.
