Seed to Fruition Presents: Spoken Word Soirée Series – Chapter 1

A curated, immersive experience, featuring the crème de la crème of Asheville poetic talent. Seriously, this lineup is beyond epic… don’t miss it!

*This is NOT a “poetry slam”… at all. This is a mystic linguistic supernova*

These individuals will blow your mind & open your heart. Eloquence, grace, raw passion, fiery truth, captivating expression – the essential epitomes of poetic prowess are ours to behold together.

Desired attire for the evening is semi-fancy, or fancy as f^(k.
(Strongly requested, deeply encouraged, though not “required”)

Our featured poets are veritable masters of the craft; some hold multiple national poetry awards, have taught at university level, are sought after globally for their talent, have marched alongside MLK Jr., among other applaudable accolades.

In addition, a dozen or so superb local poets will perform, including Matthew Romero, Alina Quu, Justin Blackburn, David Weber, & other notables.
(A *few* additional slots are available, PM David directly to apply).

Enchanting hours of word magic will be split into several intermissions for revelry in the regal Altamont Theatre: dancing, socializing, & savoring of hors d’oeuvres & luxurious libations.

The Gypsyswingers will provide the soundtrack to our soirèe, filling the Altamont’s award-winning listening room with juicy jazz vibrations.

$15 Presale. $20 D.O.S. (as always, no one turned away).
Discounted tickets will be offered on a promotional trade basis.
PM me directly if you’re seriously interested in volunteering.

Six Front-Row VIP Cocktail tables available upon request.
Perfect for couples on dates who want a more exclusive experience.
*Highly recommended alternative to our general chair seating.*

We look forward to communing with you. Please spread the word!
