Seattle Poetry Slam Presents Featured Poet Imani Sims And Semifinal #2 says
Join us for us SEMIFINAL #2 to determine TWO poets that will enter into 2016 Seattle Poetry Grand Slam!

Poets in SemiFinals
To Be Announced

SemiFinals are closed for sign up. Poets with the highest amount of points received in Open Slams compete in SemiFinals. There are THREE SemiFinals throughout the Slam Season. There are three rounds; scores from rounds 1 and 2 are added and elimination occurs before the final round. There is still a three minute time limit per poem, with a ten second grace period. The first and second place winners of the semi final slam, become competitors in the GRAND SLAM.

Imani Sims is a stilleto loving, chai tea guzzling 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 works to empower youth and adults through various writing courses and interdisciplinary shows all over Washington. She is a 2016 Kore Biters curator and Gay City Arts Fellow. Her book (A)live Heart is forthcoming on Sibling Rivalry Press this Fall.
