Wellington Management is a proud sponsor of the Youth Poetry Showcase this Saturday, May 30th from 8am-1pm at the Midtown Farmers Market. This past spring, young spoken-word artists from around the state competed in a series of poetry slams-- dynamic, audience-centered poetry readings of original work. Representing a diverse range of voices, experiences, and identities, these teen poets shared their stories, their perspectives, and their boundless creativity with roaring crowds, and when the dust settled, six of them became the 2015 Be Heard MN Youth Poetry Slam Series team. This July, that team will head to Atlanta for Brave New Voices, the annual international youth poetry slam tournament and festival. This is a one of a kind event so be sure to stop by!
