About the Boston Poetry Slam

The Boston Poetry Slam’s mission is to foster new voices in performance poetry, to drive the evolution of the genre, and to promote poetry to the widest and most diverse audience possible using the nurturing environment of the open mic, the appeal of compelling featured poets, and the competition of poetry slam.

Their flagship show is every Wednesday night at 8:00pm at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA. Find recaps of each show, the upcoming calendar, and archived poet history from 1991 to now at the Boston Poetry Slam website.
