We are once again proud sponsors of the Jackson Street Jazz Walk, happening along Jackson Street and within walking distance of Enter Ríos HQ on Saturday night! For four years, I was the organizer of this event and one of the things I am proud of is always finding a way to include poets: spoken word mic, Fresh Roots, Paul Nelson read last year, William Curtis…
This year, we are happy to bring M. Seven Bremner to the parking lot at Pratt for some impromptu poetry. Marlene Seven Bremner (Seven) was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1983, and currently resides in Olympia, WA. She was first introduced to the Poem Store in 2015 and fell in love with the spontaneity of it and the opportunity to connect with her community through poetry. You can find her with her vintage Olivetti Lettera 22 typewriter at the Olympia Farmer’s Market and the Ballard Farmer’s Market in Seattle, typing custom poems based on any topics you provide. When she’s not at the markets you can find Seven writing and painting in her downtown Olympia studio.
Why are they are in the parking lot at Pratt now? Because our venue where we had some awesome spoken word mics complianed the poets didn’t drink as much as the jazz listners/musicians… so you know, poets, some folks have drinking goals for you! Ha!
So learn more about Seven on these links and come get a poem while listening to great music and checking out the art scene at Pratt Fine Arts Center.
