Carrie Rudzinski is a member of the Emerson College Slam Team, better known as “The /B/ Team.” In 2008 she was named “Best Female Poet” at the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational and “Best of The Rest” at College Nationals, before her team placed fourth in the nation at the 2009 College Nationals Finals Stage. Her poetry has been described at unapologetically honest and surreal, and her soulful performances have gained national attention. Her feature at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA, known widely for its slam poetry performances, was the highest-attended show that venue had ever seen, according to the Hampshire Slam Collective. She has recently released Barefoot Whale Riders, a CD of her poetry.
