craignelsonPOETRY FEATURE: CRAIG NELSON – Fresh off his 2001 chapbook release “Textually Frustrated,” and the rampant success of his epic poem “My Ragdoll Kitten, I Love You,” Craig is ready to rock.
He also runs a weekly poetry venue ( out of Northampton, MA. Craig made a name for himself in the late 90’s / early 2000’s open mic and poetry slam scenes! A member of the 2001 Boston Cantab Poetry Slam Team that competed in Seattle Washington, Craig spins his narratives with pops of humor, sincerity and occasional allusions to german synth music from bands you’ve never heard of (well, maybe Aaron White’s heard of them). He’s been sheparding an amazing, burgeoning spoken word poetry scene in Northampton where he currently resides. It’s been far too long since his funny bone tickling tales have sparkled on a Worcester Stage!

Nickey wants to know how many gum balls you can get betwixt your cheeks as you read pre-selected macho poems that’ll do more than test your elocution skills.
