“Nicole started slamming in 2005 at LoserSlam (NJ) and Urbana (NY).     She quickly earned her spot on a team and, since 2006, has been competing at the national level. She’s been everything from a wide-eyed participant to a semi-finalist to a finalist in both team and individual slams in the National Poetry Slam, the Individual World Poetry Slam, and the Women of the World Poetry Slam.

“Locally, she organizes LoserSlam, New Jersey’s longest running slam, and is on the governing body of NYC-Urbana, a nationally respected venue. As part of the LoserSlam community, Nicole facilitated a monthly women’s writing group and a weekly writing workshop.”
