Seattle Event: 2009 Seattle Youth Poetry Grand Slam

The 2009 Seattle Youth Poetry Grand Slam happens this Friday, May 15th, 7pm at Seattle Town Hall. Twelve of Seattle’s most promising teen poets will vie for a place on the 2009 Seattle Youth Slam Team, headed to Chicago for Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Festival and Slam.  The Grand Slam will be hosted by nationally acclaimed poets Karen Finneyfrock and Matt Gano, and will feature 2-time National Slam Champ Roger Bonair-Agard.
Attached please find the event flyer.  We urge you to pre-order your ticket, and invite a friend or family member who should share this eye-opening experience.  Though you can’t put a price on creativity, this will be worth every dollar spent.  If you will not be able to join us, but would like to support, please consider sponsoring a young person by purchasing a will-call ticket in the name of “Youth Sponsor.”
