The Boston Poetry Slam’s weekly show has always been 100% volunteer-run and completely composed of poets, including the SlamMaster, the rotating cast of hosts, and the support and door staff. Even our bartenders were poet-volunteers before becoming employees of the Cantab Lounge! Collectively known as the “working girls” (a term coined by host James Caroline), the crew traditionally closes the open mic every night.
All Boston Poetry Slam staff is available for booking, including our emeriti (when local). Please browse the poets’ individual pages for additional biographical and contact information.
