perform your poetry

On Wednesdays at the Cantab Lounge, poets may perform in the open mic or poetry slam. Poets new to the venue are encouraged to follow the links to read up on the weekly format.

Monthly on Sundays at the Democracy Center, the Boston Poetry Slam presents Moonlighting: A Queer Open Mic and Reading Series. The reading is open to all with a focus is on poets of the LGBTQIA+ community, both from the greater Boston area and beyond.
