The Boston Poetry Slam is back, this time in the webosphere! Join us on Zoom (more details below) for a feature from Lyd Havens & an open mic.


Lyd Havens is the author of the chapbook I Gave Birth to All the Ghosts Here (Nostrovia! Press, 2018). The winner of the 2018 ellipsis… Poetry Prize, their work has been published in Ploughshares, The Shallow Ends, and Tinderbox Poetry Journal, among others. They were a member of the 2017 Boise Poetry Slam team, which placed 7th at group piece finals, and Boise’s representative for the 2017 Individual World Poetry Slam. Lyd is currently an undergraduate at Boise State University, where they are studying creative writing and history. They were born on their due date, and have been intensely punctual to everything since.

SCHEDULE:
7:15 - "Doors open"/Open mic sign up sheet will be posted in event
7:40 - Zoom link will be posted
8:00 - Open mic
9:15 - Featured poet


We are asking for the usual $3 admission fee (payable to $BostonPoetrySlam) to help pay features, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.


BASIC ZOOM GUIDELINES:


- Please keep your mic *muted* unless it is your turn to read. This means no verbal heckling/cheering/noise making during poems (though we still welcome all that in the chat).


- There will be a brief break after each poem for applause/rabble rousing.


- Every poet still gets the usual 3 minutes to read.


Any other questions, please post in the event discussion!
