Laura Yes Yes features at the Vancouver Poetry Slam

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 - 01:00 to 04:15

"Laura Yes Yes is a litre of amazing and a kilowatt of wonderful. She has been known to rep Northern California in its East Bay and San Franciscan forms, both at the National Poetry Slam and at the Individual World Poetry Slam. But now, to be fair, let's think of her as a total nomad with wandering heart and feet, an unexpected mercenary who laughs her victims into stupor."

This the only "qualifying" slam for January so if you're looking to make the team/playoffs then you should be coming out and this is the last chance for women who want to qualify for the Wowps playoffs to garner points towards that playoff the next week.

Doors and Signup are at 8:00 PM
Open Mic is at 8:45 PM
The Slam starts at 9:00 PM

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
