Cantab Recap for Wednesday, August 21

What a great Wednesday, Cantab: it was so sweet to have big-stage Sara Brickman fill our small-stage open date this past week; Sara brought us her Nationals-ready performance poems and also some engaging page work as well… And sold out of the three (3) chapbooks she had left. Miss your chance to get one? You can always get to her at her WordPress blog to order a copy.

After Sara’s feature, eight folks still hungry for slam faced off for a major $10 prize: in a final-pairing all-collegiate deathmatch, Christopher Lee-Rodriguez ultimately fell to the still-up-and-coming Bobby Crawford. Bobby qualifies for the 2014 BPS team selection slams and also kicks off the new 8×8 Champion of Champions series.

Next week: we’re back with Justin Lamb, BU grad fresh off his championship with Slam New Orleans at the 2013 National Poetry Slam! We’ll also continue our 8×8 series with another open slam. See you there!
