Cantab Recap for Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Cantab fans turned out in full force to see 2011 Cantab Slam Team member (and Emerson Poetry Project curator) Maya Phillips feature last night! She brought a super-tight set of old work and new, including a brandy-new chapbook for the fans. The final open slam in the 8×8 series was won by Melissa Newman-Evans, who charmed the audience early then took a heartbreaker of a final round over Ed.

Next week: everybody’s favorite vet tech poet, Jamei Bauer, will be our feature. The slam will be the first of the two 8×8 semi-finals with Bobby, Sam, Nate, and Sean competing.
