Roses are red, violets are blue. There’s no better way to celebrate Tax Day than at the Whidbey Island Arts Council Poetry Slam, at least for those with a clue.

Join Conductor of Fun Jim Freeman, and Hostess of Fun Petite Hunt, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 15 at Freeland Cafe for the beginning of the 2015 Island Arts Council Poetry Slam season. No poetic experience is required, but fun is guaranteed.

Those who attend will receive free gifts from Freeman’s Freeland shed. Additional prizes will be given to participants writing and reading their poems, created on-the-spot.

Three or more words suggested by the audience are to be used in the poems, written spontaneously. Spelling will not be judged, but prizes will be.

For further details, contact Freeman at fun@whidbey.com, or by calling him at 331-2617. If he does not answer, please leave a message as Freeman is most likely out in the shed getting prizes or bunny food.
