Get Ready, It’s Slam Season

March and April kick off Southern Word’s annual Poetry Slam Season. From Middle School to College and from East Tennessee to West, we have a poetry slam that is perfect for you to share your story.  See a complete list of our upcoming slams on at our events page.

High school youth in Middle Tennessee who would like to receive additional feedback on their poetry pieces should join us at the Nashville Public Library’s StudioNPL every Thursday at 4:00pm.

SAVE THE DATE: This year’s Tennessee High School Grand Poetry Slam will take place at Tennessee State University on Saturday, April 21 at 7:00pm. Tickets are available here.


Join Southern Word on a three year initiative to reach more youth. . .
