A message from Blake More, Mendocino County CPITS (California Poets in the Schools) area coordinator:

For the past fifteen years, the Mendocino County branch of California Poets In the Schools (with the generous support of MCOE, participating teachers, students, the Arena Theater and Matheson Performing Arts Center) has hosted two high school poetry slams.  And since the slam season is approaching, it is that time when I write to you and ask if you will judge our upcoming 2015 HS poetry slam.

I am looking for judges— (3-4 judges) for the Countywide event in Mendocino.

The Countywide Slam will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 from 4pm to 7:30pm at the Mathison Performing Arts Center on the Mendocino High School Campus. Six schools will participate.

Please email Blake: if you have questions or to say “yes, I would love to judge!” — and then let me know which slam you would like to help out with.  And if you can’t do it (actually, even if you can), please pass this email on to others you think might be willing to help us out.
