Urban Word Teen Poetry Slam at the Apollo Tomorrow!


Urban Word NYC will present its 13th annual Teen Poetry Slam tomorrow, Saturday, April 2, 2011. Teens will compete at the Apollo (yes, the world famous Apollo in Harlem). The poets, ages 13-19, will have a chance to be selected as a one of the six poets for the NYC Slam Team. The poets selected for the national team will compete at the Brave New Voices Nationals this summer in San Francisco, CA. Go out and hear over 20 talented teens "bless the mic." I also want to give a shout out to Ashley August, who will be on the mic tomorrow.

Tickets: Adults $18, Youth under 20 yrs. $12
tickets can be purchased at, in-person at the box office or by phone 800.745.3000
