Join us Tuesday, November 24, for Open Slam #2 and featured poet Troy Osaki!
ABOUT THE FEATURE:
Troy Osaki is a writer, performer and teaching artist from Seattle, WA. After winning the 2012 Youth Speaks Seattle and University of Washington Poetry Grand Slam, Troy went on to represent Seattle and his respective communities at national level events including Brave New Voices in Berkeley, CA and the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational in New York City and La Verne, CA. In 2013, Troy qualified and was selected to compete in the largest Asian American talent show in the nation, Kollaboration Star, held in Pasadena, CA. He then became the 2015 Rain City Slam Poetry Champion and proceeded to represent Seattle at the National Poetry Slam for his second year in a row in Oakland, CA. As he works to develop his minimalist yet cinematic artistic vision, Troy is regularly invited by colleges, non-profit organizations and schools to perform on campuses and in notable theaters around the country.
