The open mic at the Boston Poetry Slam boasts an illustrious history, including a rotating cast of all-star hosts. Headed up by founders Michael Brown and Patricia Smith, dozens of remarkable poets have committed to hosting at the Cantab’s open mic and slam over the past two decades of poetry. Although the bios provided by no means comprise a complete list, they do illustrate some of our key community members.
All the show’s emeriti are poets and many are available for booking to produce or perform at your show. Please see the poets’ individual pages for biographical and contact information.
