Poetry Jam

Every Sunday for more than 25 years! Doors at 7:00 pm with a poetry slam featuring poets and an open mic with the Blake Newman Group.

May 21 – Jessica Akers

Jessica Akers is a Massachusetts born-and-bred poet/storyteller/artist who’s called Cambridge home for over a decade. A true creative in every sense of the word, she is seldom found without a notebook, a set of knitting needles, or a pencil and paintbrush in her possession, ready to capture her unique perspective on the world.
