Spoken Word Poet Phil Long, who created the Jesus Poetry Slam, will be speaking at this month’s Faith & Culture Writers Connection, starting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21.  The
Washougal, Washington resident, who is also the director of the Sacrificial Poet Project, has performed in maximum-security prisons (as a guest), on university campuses, in  neighborhood bars, at Internet cafes, in churches, and in restaurants and coffee shops across the United States. Phil is the author of a poetry collection titled “Jesus Slam,” a memoir of short stories titled “Spirit is Deeper Than Flesh,” and a spoken word DVD show called “Mad At A Myth.” His passion, as reflected in his poetry, is “the hope of the Gospel as I understand it and as I am affected by it.”  He also says he is deeply opposed to “human trafficking, genocide, excessive corporate welfare, intolerant intolerance, thunderstorms over the Pacific at night, Marxism, dishonest politicians and pollution, which are similar.”
