Team Selection

The Boston Poetry Slam @ the Cantab Lounge has selected a team to represent the venue since 1991. The process for selecting the slam team is known as the Team Selection Slams, and the rules and format are designed to select a group of dynamic performers with “deep pockets” and devotion to writing and craft.

Poets who have earned top honors in an individual (not team) poetry slam are invited to try out for the team by competing in the preliminary rounds of the Team Selection Slams; qualified poets will be listed here on the venue website and, whenever possible, contacted by the Slam Curator by email.
