Louder Than a Bomb-Tacoma: The Tacoma Teen Poetry Festival is an annual teen team poetry slam event that features poets ages 13-19 from schools and community organizations all over the South Puget Sound.
This year LTAB-Tacoma is bigger than ever! The day’s events will kick off with preliminary bouts at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., followed by the finals at 3:30 p.m. There will also be a Poetry Yoga workshop and a Community-wide Open Mic during the day. Throughout the event, young poets and their adult mentors will showcase their poetic talents at the finals, which are open to the public.
The program will also include special guest poets, educators and live DJs to create a fun and supportive environment for poets and audience alike. The event is all ages and free, although donations are appreciated. LTAB-Tacoma is presented by Write253 and Tacoma Community College’s Office of Student Engagement and funded by the Tacoma Arts Commission.
