February 18th: Dawn Gabriel at Stone Soup

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On February 18th, we welcome Dawn Gabriel back to our podium.

Dawn Gabriel, a sometime co-host at the Cantab poetry slam, has been writing and performing poetry for almost 20 years.  The Worcester Telegram and Gazette has called her an “extraordinarily captivating performer, marrying engaging language and imagery with an outrageous sense of humor and comic timing.” 

Dawn toured with Lollapalooza in 1994, appeared on the finals stage at the 1997 National Poetry Slam as a member of the fourth place Worcester team, and has been on 3 other national slam teams (Providence 98, Boston 05, and Boston 06).  She has performed at the Seattle Poetry Festival, the Boston Globe Book Fair, and First Night in three cities.  Her poetry has been published in numerous anthologies, including the 20 Years at the Cantab Anthology, and Knocking at the Door: Approaching the Other, published by Birch Bench Press.
