Society of Urban Poets (S.O.U.P.)
The mission of the Society of Urban Poetry (S.O.U.P.) is to unite literary poets and spoken word artists across the Boston area. S.O.U.P. recognizes the diversity among creative individuals and groups across gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, faith, ability, and age.
We seek to do dope poetry with dope people; to shed light on poetry and spoken word as integral pieces of the Boston Creative Arts community; and to foster an inclusive network that embraces all forms of diversity, and aims to bridge divisions that still exist within the poetic community.
