Coffee County Teen Poetry Slam
April 10, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm CDT
STUDENTS INTERESTED IN COMPETING MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE HERE.
Listen as the region’s top youth poets, emcees, and spoken word artists compete for top lyrical honors, a chance to appear at the statewide finals, and a shot to travel to the Brave New Voices Poetry Slam slated for Las Vegas this summer.
Southern Word creates a platform for youth to speak about the real hopes and challenges of their lives. Discretion is advised for this event as some material may be unsuitable for young children.
The event is presented by Southern Word through the generous support of the Tennessee Arts Commission, the National Endowment of the Arts and CMT.
