Already an avid poetry slam listener when she moved to Boston in 2008, Emily Carroll spent a couple of mostly silent years soaking up the voice of the Boston Poetry Slam before she came to the mic. A regular reader, National Poetry Slam volunteer, fill-in bar server, and three-year co-curator of Moonlighting, the Boston Poetry Slam’s now-retired queer open mic and reading series, Emily still can’t get enough of the Boston Poetry Slam.

Emily holds a BFA in Writing, Literature, & Publishing from Emerson College, where she was co-curator and SlamMaster for the Emerson Poetry Project. She is now a freelance writer, editor, designer, teaching artist, and waitress. She lives in Jamaica Plain with her partner and PJ, the wonder pug of Forest Hills.
