September 29th – Adam Stone


Adam Stone has been involved in slam since he misread an academic schedule in 1998 and wandered into a poetry club by mistake. Since then, Adam has represented venues at the National Poetry Slam twelve times, and for a variety of cities He bartends at the Cantab, where he was trained by the illustrious Judy Griffin;  he has tried to remain true to her visions of overpouring, overlistening, shushing loud people, and occasionally saying something inappropriate regarding the people on stage. Adam currently curates the venue’s weekly writing prompt series, Tips from the Bar, runs a most-weekly writers group called The Crooked Treehouse, and in 2012, he edited the 20 Years at the Cantab Lounge Anthology which celebrated… Well… The twentieth anniversary of the Boston Poetry Slam at the Cantab Lounge. He’s also been published in the 2013 Flicker & Spark Anthology of Queer Writers. In his increasingly spare time, he also works for a comic book store, Million Year Picnic, and has a graphic novel selection that worries many potential suitors.
