Class Description

For the second year in a row, Grub Street is forming it's own high school slam poetry team to compete in this year's Louder Than A Bomb slam poetry competition. Last year, our slam team made it all the way to the finals! Register for a spot to audition for the team today! We're looking for 6 students to create a slam team. Students will perform their poems to a group of judges and their fellow slam participants. Each student will need 3 poems (memorization is ideal, but not required) to compete, and will have no more than 3 minutes to perform each poem (The shorter, the better, as your score will be penalized for going over the time limit). We will have a panel of slam poetry judges that will give scores after each performance. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. For more about Louder Than A Bomb, check out the trailer for a recent documentary that chronicles four teams as they compete in the first ever Louder Than A Bomb slam poetry competition. YOU MUST BE IN HIGH SCHOOL TO REGISTER-- NO EXCEPTIONS.
Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. Please visit the Resources tab to access the video-conference link.
