Bob Nelson

Biography

In 1994, Bob (Me) co-founded Anthology magazine with writer J.A. Giunta. The magazine would run for ten years and print a wide variety of up and coming poets and writers. Also in 1994, Bob (also me) started the Essenzaslam Poetry Slam, which runs to this day as the longest running poetry slam in the Southwest. In 1999, Bob founded Spokenworld.com, a pioneer internet readio station focusing on spoken word programming. In 2001, writer Sharon Skinner and Bob founded Anthology as a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

Currently, Bob is the chief of Brick Cave Media, a media microglomerate (his home office) for the crazy ideas that his friends and I dream up. In 2006, He released my second spoken word CD, Boboratory, that is available through the Brick Cave Media Store as either a physical CD or downloadable MP3's. He serves on the Board of Anthology, Inc., and still wanders around the local poetry scene.
