TEN finalists grace the Grand Slam stage for ONE transformative night of poetry. Witness stories of love, loss, resistance and survival, told through the raw medium of spoken word. The truth will change you.
The top five poets will be named the 2019 Youth Speaks Seattle Slam Team and will rep Seattle at the 2019 International Brave New Voices Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada in July.
The Grand Slam is Youth Speaks Seattle's biggest annual fundraiser. In order to continue providing incredible youth-led programs such as our writing circles, open mics, poetry slams and paid internships, we need you to support us!
