Cassandra de Alba enjoys writing poetry that can make you laugh and feel horribly alone at the same time. She graduated from Hampshire College with a degree in history and poetry and a manuscript of poems partially based on the American sideshow. She has represented the NorthBEAST at three National Poetry Slams (with Slam Free or Die in 2008 and Hampshire County Slam Collective in 2010 and 2011) and performed up and down the East Coast with the No More Ribcage tour. She lives in Somerville with a cat named Roger Mindf**ker, who won’t stop hitting her.
