In the last 20+ years, Allison Durazzi has won over audiences with her poetry about family, gender, and power. She’s well-known in Seattle for her five-year stint as The Seattle Poetry Slam’s weekly emcee/organizer and co-directed the 2001 National Poetry Slam. Offstage, Allison has worked in marketing, communications, and public policy. This is her final Seattle performance before moving to Iowa for graduate school.
Thomas Hard is a writer whose work talks about the mundane—daily observations that are both heartbreaking and uplifting. He loves a good laugh and was unofficially The Seattle Poetry Slam’s Official Heckler and creator of the Slam’s official cheer. By day, he is an EMT. This is his final Seattle performance before moving to Iowa.

and IWPS Qualifier #3
ABOUT THE SLAM:
Individual World Poetry Slam (IWPS) is a performance poetry competition, designed for an individual poet. Poets from all over the world compete in this competition. In these slams, poets have a different time limit in every round.
Poets must have a four minute, two minute, and one minute poems to compete. A ten second grace period is added to each limit.
The winner of the FINALS after these preliminaries will represent Seattle Poetry Slam at Individual World Poetry Slam in October!
