1i's Youth Poetry Slam Team Auditions this Sunday! Join us and compete at Brave New Voices!

Hello, we're One Imagination. And this past spring, we organized a youth leadership, writing, performance, and mentorship program called Our Word is Our Weapon. One Imagination along with three of the youth from Our Word is Our Weapon decided to give it a shot and apply to compete in the international Brave New Voices Youth Poetry Slam Competition. Well, we got accepted, but teams must have 4-6 youth poets! So, we have at least one slot to fill, and we are looking for young poets, ages 13-19, to audition THIS SUNDAY for a chance to be a part of our team and compete at Brave New Voices this summer!

If you're interested or might know someone who is interested, please contact Jumakae at jumakae@gmail.com to schedule an audition. Auditions start at 3PM on Sunday, May 16th, and will be held at a location in downtown Long Beach, accessible by the Metro Rail Blue Line. Please prepare at least two original pieces and expect to answer some basic questions about yourself.

Please spread the word!

Thank you,
