This too! Youth Poetry Event this Saturday!
Hear, Here!, in partnership with the City of Colorado Springs, is hosting two Youth Poetry Slam events leading up to the formation of the team that will represent the Pikes Peak Region at the 2015 International youth poetry slam stage in Atlanta, GA, July 15-19.
After a successful series of workshops with local area high school youth, Hear, Here! is incredibly excited for the Youth Semifinal Slam on March 28th.
This event will be hosted at Colorado College in the Cornerstone Arts Center (Richard F. Celeste Theater, 825 N. Cascade Ave.) with doors opening at 6:30 pm and the event starting at 7:00 pm.
The top eighteen poets (see below for info on registering poets) from various schools in the Pikes Peak region will grace the stage with a poem apiece for a chance to earn one of nine spots on the finals stage in April. “Celebrity” judges from the local community will judge the slam. This event is FREE and open to the public, all ages welcome.
