Get Lit Presents: The Classic Slam!

Classic Slam is around the corner.
I first learned about Get Lit: Words Ignite at ONE Women and Girls and a year later, am proud to announce that I have joined them as part of their advisory board. Not only that, but I get to be one of of the judges at the Classic Slam Final this Saturday, May 2ndat the Wilshire Ebell Theatre downtown. I am honored and excited and I hope some of you will join me and the INCREDIBLE young poets of Los Angeles.

Stories are the great agents for change. Let us elevate the voices of our young people and applaud their courage to turn themselves inside out and slam their words against our ears.

Because THIS is power. THIS is change. THIS is the future of Los Angeles and the world. THIS is what poetry does for young people. It moves. It shakes. It revolutionizes.
I'm in Phoenix for the next three days so will unfortunately be missing the semi-finals, but for those looking to support teen voices and get inspired by the FUTURE of Los Angeles, tomorrow night (April 30th) and Friday night (May 1st) the 4th Annual Teen Poetry Slam Quarter and Semi-finals will be hosted at LA Theatre Center. (See below for more details.) Go to for more information and purchase your tickets, here! 
I hope to see some of you Saturday night! it's going to be EPIC. Go in, Poets!
