The Poetry Slam Family mourns the passing of another giant, Gabrielle Bouliane.
Beyond her talent as a poet, Gabrielle worked tirelessly behind the scenes for the family recording countless bouts at NPS, IWPS, and WOWPS. Her contribution to the growth of poetry slam as a movement cannot be overstated.
