Jackson Street Jazz Walk

By |

We are a proud sponsor of this year’s Jackson Street Jazz Walk! Come on down to Jackson Street in Seattle’s Central District for a night of great music, including a jam with Julian Priester, the Pratt Fine Arts Center annual open house with the popular bronze pour, and good food at the many restaurants along Jackson.

For four years, I organized this event, but at the press continues to grow and demand full attention, I was so happy to hand this off to NW Jazz Vocalist of the year, Eugenie Jones. So if you’ve come before, expect some changes, but one thing that won’t change is a bit of poetry happening as well. We’ve had some GREAT poets in the past, including Freshest Roots and William Curtis, so this year it’s our privilege to bring M. Seven Brenner to Pratt. She’ll be making poems for you on her typewriter, so think of a topic and get a poem!

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.

William the Poet at the Jackson Street Jazz Walk!

By | Sponsorships

Publisher by day, community organizer by night… or perhaps the other way around, it was my great pleasure to sponsor the appearance of William the Poet at the Jackson Street Jazz Walk. In our poetry-centric view of the world, I’d consider him a cool part of the scene and he is easy to find at farmer’s markets plying the trade with poems made while you wait or shop for radishes and kale. I am guessing he makes more money that many fancy-shmancy poets out there. I would guess he makes more money than we’ll ever see. Hmmmm… maybe we need a career change!?!

So it delights me very much to bring to the Central District, home of Entre Ríos Press, for a little street-livening!

You can see more of his work on his Instagram, William Curtis.

And do get in touch, if you are looking for an on-demand poet for your next event. I’ve got his contact information and can recommend him.

Here is his poem that he wrote for me based on the word, “Jazz”.
