Youth Poetry Slam

In season 8 of our Youth Poetry Slam program, poets will have more opportunities to share their works as the season has expanded. Starting with our kick-off event, the Youth Poetry Summit, youth poets can join a safe community of young wordsmiths throughout the Greater St. Louis region. Interested teams can register for the Youth Poetry Summit or poetry slam bouts below.
