Eight Great Reasons To Come To Ignite Seattle #30

This Thursday (5/26) at 8:00pm is Ignite Seattle #30 – we’re thrilled to bring you another edition of the largest open submission public speaking event in the Northwest. We’ve sold out many shows in a row, as we consistently deliver a fun, challenging, fast paced evening of ideas, opinions and stories for your pleasure.

If you’ve never come before, or have missed a few, this is a great one to come check out.

Here are eight amazing reasons to come to Ignite 30:

  1. We are in Town Hall Seattle’s Great Hall, one of Seattle’s oldest and best venues for live events (and they have a cash bar that opens at 7pm)
  2. Erica McGillvray will teach you how to write a novel in a month.
  3. If you’re cranky and old (like me), you’ll get your biases confirmed (but also tested) in a talk about why the world hates millennials.
  4. If you are hip and young, you’ll laugh at learning about what if life were like stock photography, and how to live in the gig economy.
  5. Hang out with 800+ of Seattle’s coolest, most friendly audience members during our world famous intermission (we intermiss better than anyone anywhere). But the event usually sells out, so buy tickets in advance.
  6. If you like fruit and vegetables, and who doesn’t, you have bees to thank. Nicollette Neumann will tell you about fantastic bees and where to find them.
  7. Seattle has a homeless problem, yes? Learn about a new approach that might lead us to a cure.
  8. Islamophobia is sadly on the rise in America – Amanda Saab with share what it’s like to be your Muslim neighbor.
  9. It’s our 30th Ignite event, a number cleanly divisible by 6, 3, or 5! Go Math! We’re so excited we forgot how to count as this is reason #9 (which does NOT divide evenly into 30).
  10. We promise an evening free from the words: caucus, poll, superdelegate or Trump.

You will hate yourself if you don’t come. I mean, it’s Thursday night – shouldn’t you start your weekend of awesome a day early? We think you deserve it.

Go here to buy tickets ($5).  Doors open at 7:00pm (as does the cash bar). Talks start at 8:00pm, with an  intermission. Full list of speakers and topics.
