Join Us for the 2016 State of the Word!

Words have the power to create change which is why each year Southern Word and its key partners showcase the region’s top college and high school writers, poets, emcees, and spoken-word artists. This important night provides a platform for students to create community change by addressing the issues that resonate deepest with them. Inspired by the courage and truth these youth speak, you will walk away from this event inspired and forever changed. A panel of judges will also select the third Nashville Youth Poet Laureate, a program which aims to identify young writers committed to civic engagement, diversity and tolerance, and youth voice across Nashville.
