Douglas Bishop

Douglas Bishop

While Douglas was not at the first Poetry Jam at the Lizard Lounge, he came along soon after and has been jamming and slamming at the venue for 20-plus years. In this “birthday” feature, he will be performing poems from his new book, “Unknown Songs.” As a teacher, he has worked with students ranging in age from 1 to 90, but now teaches English as a Second Language in an urban middle school. As a poet, he has performed in a variety of venues, from Glasgow to Guatemala, but now he’s mostly found in Lowell, MA, at the Untitled Open Mic, where he is the Slam Master. He is currently working on a doctorate in education, looking at the development of identity in young writers. You can contact him at douglasbishoppoet.com
