Cecily Schuler is a Miami-raised Brooklyn-based genderqueer writer and performer. Their work is featured in the Offing, great weather for MEDIA, Duende and elsewhere. While receiving an MFA in Writing and Social Activism at the Pratt Institute, and attending residencies at Breadloaf Writers’ Conference, the Home School: Miami and the Vermont Studio Center, they’ve been working on a full-length experimental poetic memoir of sorts. They are an assistant editor at Drunken Boat, and run Union Square Slam, a weekly poetry open mic and slam in the heart of New York City every Tuesday. Cecily’s chapbook, 296, is available from Next Left Press.

This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. An open poetry slam in the 8×8 series will follow. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
