Hosted by: Matt Gallant

A prolific poet and educator, Matthew P. Gallant was a Finalist for the 2014 Steven Dunn Poetry Prize and a current middle / high school teacher who uses poetry daily in the classroom. Matthew competed at three National Poetry Slams (2009—2011), was crowned the 2011 NorthBeast Slam Champion, runs Sargent Press (independent small press publisher) and is also a member of the Beltway Poetry Slam hosting team. Jesse Parent, whose "To Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter" went viral and received two million hits, once said of him, "He probably looks more like the bouncer than the talent to most people, but this is a true poet who just happens to know how to own a stage."
