staff and credits

The Boston Poetry Slam’s weekly show has always been 100% volunteer-run and completely composed of poets, including the producers, organizers, hosts, doortenders, and other support staff. Even our past bartenders were poet-volunteers before becoming employees of the Cantab Lounge! The staff traditionally closes out the open mic every night.

All Boston Poetry Slam staff is available for booking, including our past staff (when local). Please browse the poets’ individual pages for additional biographical and contact information. For website credits, click here.
