Event description

Description

Teens With a Purpose is pleased to present for the tenth year to Southeastern Virginia the Hampton Roads Youth Poetry Slam Season and Festival entitled "SlamFest". All across the nation, young people are picking up the pen and stepping up to the microphone using spoken word poetry.

The Festival has become a modern tradition, a festival of competitive performance poetry that blends written tradition with lyricism, positive music and stage acumen in a way that profoundly affects and entertains youth and audiences of all kinds. Here young poets fearlessly tell their stories, in their own words to be shared with their generation and the community at-large in a olympic style competition.

The six finalists will represent all of Hampton Roads locally, regionally and nationally.
