The Boston Poetry Slam is pleased to present a reschedule of our promised feature for August 16, 2017.
Emily Duggan has studied writing, performance poetry, straight and applied theatre, and improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy at Brandeis University, Emerson College, GrubStreet, The Second City— Chicago, and more. In the past three years, she has worked as a/an: traveling-children’s-theatre intern, K-12 tutor, improvisational illustrator, escape-room facilitator, puppet-theatre administrator, historic educator, psychologist’s assistant, documentary-theatre actor, dramaturg, and ghost (seriously) (dead seriously) (sorry not sorry) (actually sorry). In the summer of 2016, she may have been the first woman to print Paul Revere’s [in]famous engraving of the Boston Massacre in over 200 years — and on the same device he’d’ve used. After all that excitement and too much more, Emily fled Boston in August 2017, and she is currently a candidate for an MFA in Writing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
