The 2018 Be Heard MN Youth Poetry Slam Series FINALS: March 31 at SteppingStone Theatre

It's that time of year again. This is the SIXTH annual Be Heard MN Youth Poetry Slam Series presented by TruArtSpeaks, and we've already been through five fantastic prelims and two semis bouts. Finals, featuring 12 of the fiercest MN poets between the ages of 13 and 19, will be held on Saturday, March 31, at SteppingStone Theatre in Saint Paul. Get your tickets now!

Every year, Finals is breathtaking. If you want to support youth voice, and also just hear some moving poetry, you should be there.
