The TYPS championship is around the corner, but the 2012-2013 season isn’t over yet! This month we brought down some of the heat from Phoenix, AZ – Phonetic Spit! And they weren’t the only ones bringing the heat, hosted by Amy Briseno and Zack T. the whole night was non stop youth talent and supah hot fire spitting!
Logan Phillips kicked off the night with a special workshop on revising and editing poetry. With the championship around the corner the TYPSters are kicking it in gear with their writing and Logan helped with the fine tuning with a few helpful editing tips!
After the workshop the night continued with each and every poet tearing up the mic with their hot talent! We had some new faces along and new poetry along with the familiar. And that includes the feature! Phonetic Spit poets Tomas Stanton, Garret Pauli, and Rosie Casales shared their talent with the TYPS straight out of their own slam earlier on the day! Because we all know poetry is a full time job!
Also throughout the night the official announcement was made for the new parent organization of the Tucson Youth Poetry Slam – Spoken Futures Incorporated! Logan Phillips and Sarah Gonzalez announced the new organization along with the all new finally released mission and vision statement! Excitement all around!
Congrats to this months winners!
