Culminating of the 2014 Youth Speaks Seattle Slam series, 12 finalists will grace the final stage to create a transformative night of poetry. These are some of the finest, most brave and talented young poets in Seattle. At the Grand slam you will witness stories of love, loss, resistance and survival, told through the raw medium of spoken word. The truth will change you.

All poets will perform original works, without the use of music or props. Each poem is scored by a panel of judges from the community–after the 3rd round, 5 poets will be named the 2014 Youth Speaks Seattle Slam Team and for on to represent Seattle at the 2014 International Brave New Voices Festival in Philadelphia 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!
