Regarding The Caller on Today's On Point Radio Featuring Slam Poetry

Let it be known that "Susie" who called WBUR today was NOT representing Stone Soup Poetry as a group. If you are going to make a comment about slam poetry, please stand on your own two feet and not on behind any banner you think we might be holding. In the last few years, Stone Soup has featured and appreciated poetry in all its forms and will continue to do so. Such comments made allegedly on our behalf do nothing but hurt us and the poetry scene as a whole.
