Extra congratulations to Providence, who brought nuanced and important work to the stage to take a definitive win. The home team looks forward to bouting them again on August 4 at the National Poetry Slam.
SPEAKING OF THE NATIONAL POETRY SLAM: Did you know that the team will only be in town for one more week before going to Georgia for Nationals? Next Wednesday, you won’t want to miss your chance to see Neiel Israel, Zeke Russell, Mckendy Fils-Aimé, Simone Beaubien, and Bobby Crawford co-feature in an hour-long slamstravaganza. There will be fundraising chapbooks, CDs, poems on poems on poems, and, of course, your chance to wish the team well at Nats.
