This night is an installment in the Boston Poetry Slam’s “Sober October,” a month-long series of shows and readers selected to celebrate the sober and recovering artists in our scene.
Named “Best Female Poet” at the 2008 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, Carrie Rudzinski has since performed her work for audiences across the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and India. She represented the Boston Poetry Slam at the 2010 Individual World Poetry Slam, twice at the National Poetry Slam (2010/2011), and ranked 14th at the 2011 Women Of The World Poetry Slam. At the 2011 National Poetry Slam, she took 2nd place at the coveted Underground Individual Competition, where poets are judged by an audience of their peers.
Most recently, Carrie represented Denver’s Mercury Cafe at the 2013 Women of The World Poetry Slam. Her work has been published in such collections as Words Dance, Muzzle, OnMag, and Alight. Her newest book, The Shotgun Speaks, was released in 2013.

The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. An open slam in the 8×8 series will follow. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
