The Skagit River Poetry Foundation and The Manieri Jazz Endowment of the Anacortes Library present Wordjazz, a hybrid of poetry and jazz performed by local students on Wednesday, April 14 at 7:00 pm.
The performance features the poetry of the SRPF’s three student laureates: Lucy Shainin from Anacortes H.S., Octavia Prosser from Oak Harbor H.S. and Olivia Elias from Sedro Woolley H.S.
Also performing is musician Kellen Murphy from Anacortes High School. Each student poet has collaborated with musicians to create a combination of words and jazz which is more than the sum of its parts.
The performance can be viewed on the Poetry Foundation’s website at skagitriverpoetry.org or on the Anacortes Library site at cityofanacortes.org
