Bob Holman is a poet and poetry activist in the United States. After graduating from Columbia University in 1970, Bob Holman founded, with Sara Miles and Susie Timmons, the NYC Poetry Calendar, a free monthly publication with all the readings and poets "on the same page." This led to his first poetry job in 1977: with the CETA Artists Project, the largest federally-funded artist project since the WPA. This in turn led to a run coordinating the Monday Night Series at St. Mark's Poetry Project and his later becoming the Coordinator there. Holman was instrumental in the reopening of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in 1987, and was the original slammaster there. He is generally credited with bringing the poetry slam to New York City, where it eventually penetrated the mass media and commercial markets
