What do you get with amazing poetry, a live DJ, and a dope venue...?
Come watch our second Youth Poetry Slam Qualifier of the season as students from across the DMV compete for a chance to rank among the globe's top youth poets and emcees!
Slam rules: all participants must be 13-19-years-old and come prepared with two original pieces (do not have to be memorized) not exceeding the length of 3 minutes and 30 seconds, one poem per round. Participants are not allowed to use props, costumes, or accompanying music. The top 4 will be invited to compete in our Grand Slam Finals for a chance to be on the 2018 Words Beats & Life DMV team traveling to Brave New Voices in Chicago next summer!
