Each year, the YouthSpeaks Seattle Slam Series showcases some of the best in original youth spoken-word poetry, dazzling with raw insight and impassioned performance. This Grand Slam is the culmination of the all-city Youth Slam Series, with poets age 13-19 competing to become one of five winners who will go on to the National Brave New Voices Conference in July 2013. Since 2003, YouthSpeaks Seattle has been the city’s premier collective for youth spoken-word poetry, creating space for young people’s voices through creative writing and performance opportunities. In 2011, YSS became a program of ArtsCorps, a leading youth arts-education nonprofit.
Tickets are $20/$10 under age 21; no one turned away at the door. Sign-ups begin at 6:30 pm. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
