Space City Slam, presented by Writers in Schools, was here on Saturday, March 7. Teenagers came in and signed up to compete by reading their original poems and raps. There was a panel of judges and participants were ranked on their writing, creativity, and delivery. There were a lot of talented young people. And between poets, we had a DJ playing some great music. It wasn't always easy to get up in front of an audience and share your thoughts and feelings but all of the poets did so. The winners advance to semi-finals and could wind up going all the way to the international event, held in Atlanta, Georgia later this year. We hope to make this an annual event as it was so much fun!
