Mark Anderson is a poet from Spokane, WA. His life as a poet started when he wandered into a small open mic at Empyrean Coffee House. After that he started drinking coffee and went on to organize poetry slams in Spokane. Later, he started a poetry open mic (Broken Mic) which has served as a catalyst for making writing and art relevant in his home city. Oh, he has also read across the Northwest, competed in two individual World Poetry Slams, and displayed at the Spokane Museum of Arts and Culture and nearly every other venue for writing in Spokane.
