Drama! Heartbreak! Masquerade! Not having to get a stupid dinner reservation for two people at a stupid restaurant! Thanks to everyone who came out this past week for the best non-holiday-eve ever, as the Lovers and the Leavers slammed off in a head-to-head Totally Not Fixed poetry slam hosted by a decidedly objective Zeke Russell. In true Cantab fashion, some of our finest Lovers showed up to sweep their matchups, but the crowd’s will for the Leavers was strong. Congratulations to everybody, seriously everybody, who wrote a new poem in the very middle of February to make this an exceptional night.
February rolls on, of course, and it’s all really good. This week, the Boston Poetry Slam is exceptionally pleased to present Claudia M. Wilson as our Wednesday headliner; Claudia will be swinging in from Amherst with their new chapbook, GROWN, totally hot off the presses to share with you. Poets interested in a revision workshop with Claudia should plan to arrive early for the show: please see our workshop event details to join in.
