Check out the AUSTIN CITY-WIDE UNDER 21 POETRY SLAM this weekend. It will be Saturday, December 8th, at 2:30 pm. You can see a great video of the poets from the event last year here. The event is sponsored by the Texas Youth Word Collective, and you can find out more information about their entire series on their website.
Participants in the City Wide Under 21 Poetry Slam have represented Austin at the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festivals in Chicago , Los Angeles , San Francisco , New York , and San Jose. The top four poets of this season will win an all-expense trip to Washington D.C., just in time to speak their minds before the national elections.
