Catherine Weiss loves poems. And friendship. And crying. Sometimes she loves them all at once. Catherine is known for her mix of tenderness and humor, and definitely not for punching through walls like the Hulk when she doesn’t win a slam. Her poetry has been published in Freezeray Poetry, Voicemail Poems, Gravel Mag, Jersey Devil Press, Drunk in a Midnight Choir, and elsewhere. She was the 2017 Grand Slam Champion of Northampton Poetry and is the editor-in-chief of SlamChop. In August 2017, she founded the poetry show Pulp Slam in Easthampton, Mass. More about Catherine can be found at http://catherineweiss.com.

This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. An open poetry slam in the 8×8 series will follow. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
