Registration for the 2016 Be Heard MN Youth Poetry Slam Series is Now Open!

The Be Heard MN Youth Poetry Slam Series takes place every January through March, and 2016 should be the biggest one yet. Five prelims, two semifinals, and one huge Finals slam-- all for Minnesota poets between the ages of 13 and 19.

As always, yeah, being one of the final six poets who go on to represent Minnesota at Brave New Voices is great-- but the slam series is so much bigger than that. It's an opportunity to share your work, to plug into this incredible community, and BUILD with people from all over the state.

The full schedule and registration form are here. Remember, you can compete in as many prelims as you want, so signing up for the first or second of the five is a good tactical move. Just something to consider.

ALSO, if you have any interest in working with me, I'll be facilitating a special three-day intensive spoken-word workshop over winter break! December 28, 29, and 30th at the MPLS Central Library's Mark E. Johnson Conference Room. 2-4pm each day. These are FREE and open to anyone between the ages of 13 and 19, no matter how much/little experience you have.
