Focus: Seattle Poets – Amber Flame

Amber Flame

by Rasmus Rasmussen on January 10, 2012

This is the first in a series of six video features. I am proud to premiere FOCUS: SEATTLE POETS, where each video puts the spotlight on one performer on the Seattle poetry slam scene. Each poet delivers an original piece to the camera, giving you a first row, super intimate view.

For those unfamiliar with poetry slam, it is a competitive way of performing poetry, often judged by non-poet members of the audience. It’s very fast paced, even when it’s quiet in expression, and often very entertaining to watch. I like to think of it as the bastard child of stand-up comedy and a classic author book reading.

Amber Flame is the first poet featured. I am not going to spoil the piece, but the delivery is forceful and smart, and there is wisdom there on more level than one. When not performing, she works as an art teacher at Art Corps in Seattle. You can find more Amber Flame on Facebook.
