Say Word! Youth Poetry Festival is a one day youth spoken word event with sidewalk dance ciphers, a non-competitive open mic, workshops, networking, guest performances and a marathon of slam competitions aimed at crowning the 2011 Say Word! Champions. Slam teams feature Youth ages 13-19. Any youth 19 and under can create a team of 4-6 poets to participate in the festival, whether they are enrolled in school, part of an after school program or just youth in the community. Teams will compete in a series of slams with the four remaining teams competing in the Finals. There is limited space in the workshops; please arrive by Noon to sign up. The community at large is invited to come witness, participate and support the youth. Poetry will be all-age appropriate.
