Muni Haiku Battle III this Saturday!
The Muni Haiku Battle Arena will be resurrected this Saturday at Muni Diaries Live. Are you ready? In every battle, we pit poet against poet in a 17-syllable face-off. Our reigning champion is writer James Nestor, whose wit and impeccable style have won him two handmade trophies. Above, you’ll see James in a very close battle against sex advice columnist Anna Pulley.
The Muni Haiku Battle is modeled after the dirty haiku battles at Oakland’s Tourettes Without Regrets, the Bay’s must-see spoken-word show hosted by Jamie DeWolf. DeWolf refereed that very first battle at Lit Crawl 2012. For this Saturday, we enlisted audience favorite storyteller Jesse James to take on the challenge of besting our reigning champion. Will Jesse be the one to finally unseat James? Come and find out for yourself.
