Jasmin Roberts, Pioneer Valley poet.

Jasmin Roberts hails from Brooklyn, NY, and has lived in the Pioneer Valley for the last 7 years. She is a graduate of Oberlin College, where she majored in Creative Writing and Psychology. She joined the local poetry scene in 2013, and competed in the 2015 National Poetry Slam as a member of the Northampton Poetry team. She not only prides herself on creating new poetry weekly, but also new words. Some of her favorites include “fuckability” and “homotastic.” In the span of three minutes, she will make you laugh your ass off and question your place in the world, and she’ll do it all sporting 4-inch heels.

This show in our monthly Thursday LGBTQ series takes place at Fazenda Coffee Roasters, 3710 Washington St. in the Jamaica Plain area of Boston. An open mic begins at approximately 7:00 p.m. and the headliner follows the open mic. The show is all-ages and a $3 donation is requested.
