Named “Best Female Poet” and “Best Of The Rest” at her first national poetry competition in 2008, Carrie Rudzinski is a full time performance poet who spends her time traveling and performing her work on stages around the world. She was born at the Cantab Lounge in early September 2005 when her Poetry As Performance class at Emerson College brought her to the Boston Poetry Slam and changed her life.
Carrie has since toured the United States three times, representing the Boston Poetry Slam at the 2010 Individual World Poetry Slam and twice at the National Poetry Slam in 2010 and 2011. She ranked 14th in the world at the 2011 Women Of The World Poetry Slam in Columbus, Ohio. Most recently, Carrie embarked on a poetry tour of the Southern Hemisphere, performing her work to audiences in New Zealand, Australia, and India.
She has been published twice in the online magazine Muzzle and her first collection of poetry, A History Of Silence (Bicycle Comics, 2010), is available from Amazon or poetryslam.com. She may be contacted by email or via Facebook.
