Old Growth Northwest Reading And Open Mic Series Volume Xiii says
Old Growth Northwest is excited to present Volume XIII of our series, an event packed with so many bright spring flowers we've barely got room to put out the chairs. Arrive early to sign up for a 5min open mic slot.

Our headlining readers for April include the talented Imani Sims, Nathan Fowler and Janie Miller. The three readers will read original material in addition to their short responses to a common prompt. The authors also have their texts projected onto a screen behind them as they read.

The April prompt: "At the age of six I was already sure I was the last prophet."

Bio's of our Headlining Readers:

Imani Sims is a stiletto loving Seattle native who spun her first performance poem at the age of fourteen. Since then, she has developed an infinitely rippling love for poetry in all of its forms. She believes in the healing power of words and the transformational nuance of the human story. Imani is the founder of Split Six Productions (splitsix.com), an interdisciplinary art production company that works towards connecting artists and collecting POC stories for production on stage. She is a 2015 Lambda Literary Emerging Writer Fellow and 2015 Jack Straw Fellow. Her book Twisted Oak is available on Requiem Press and her second collection Beloved:Collision is available via Amazon.

Janie Elizabeth Miller is a poet & essayist living on a small organic farm on Vashon Island, WA. She won the Grand Prize for the Eco Arts Awards in 2014 & was a finalist for terrain.org’s 2013 poetry contest. Janie directs poetry studies at the University of Washington in Tacoma & teaches at Richard Hugo House. Her work explores the environmental imagination, the artist as activist & ways to use naturalism (the senses & spirit!) to access greater worldhood. Her work can be found at Poecology, terrain.org, CURA, Cimarron Review, Columbia Poetry Review, Written River: A Journal of Eco-Poetics, Five Fingers Review and others. Please contact her at janiemiller76@gmail.com for questions about classes, manuscript editing or performances.

Nathan Fowler is a local writer and fiction author, currently finishing his second novel for young readers. He's led writing workshops in elementary schools and currently volunteers with the Bureau of Furious Ideas, a Seattle organization that inspires and mentors young writers. When he's not writing he's roasting coffee, learning the game of Go, or exploring the different neighborhoods of Seattle on foot.
