Soul Scribes


Founded in 2004, Soul Scribes is the only group at Dartmouth dedicated exclusively to performance poetry. It has enjoyed much popularity and success since its inception. The Scribes have made multiple appearances at the national College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational and were the 2012 champions of the Wade Lewis Poetry Slam Invitational (the nation's second largest collegiate slam). The group has opened for a number of world-renowned slam poets including Roger Bonair-Agard, Derrick Brown, Andrea Gibson, Sarah Kay, Phil Kaye, Taylor Mali, Anis Mojgani, Shihan, and Buddy Wakefield. Membership in the Soul Scribes is open; there are no auditions. On campus, the group hosts writing and performance workshops, open mics, and competitive slams. They perform at a variety of venues and events across campus and frequently collaborate with other student organizations.

Meetings are open to campus and are held on Sundays at 9:30PM in Collis 218.
