YOUTH POETRY SLAM
The Youth Poetry Slam will bring together young poets of all levels for a friendly competition. The top three winners of the slam will have the opportunity to perform later that night for Free Verse, Charleston’s poetry festival. Prizes will also be awarded to top three poets. Hosted by The Unspoken Word.
We also offer in-class poetry workshops led by our 2019-2020 Artist-in-Residence Marcus Amaker, South Carolina’s first poet laureate and an award-winning graphic designer. Learn more about it here.
