Thank you all for making our first Summer Slam amazing! It was great to hear all of you perform both work that was and wasn’t yours in our first TYPS cover slam this summer!

The TYPS youth Amy B. and first time host Lydia H. ran the workshop that also revolved around our Cover Slam theme using poetry from Climbing Poetree and Sierra DeMulder! During the slam it was nothing but cover love as poets covered poetry not only from poets such as Andrea Gibson but also covered each other like Chris K. Covering our very own Caitlynn Weymann!

We also had a shout out from someone who’s first day stationed in Tucson came for some coffee and stayed for the poetry! Goes to show the impact youth and poetry can make even when facing trouble in our community.

A huge congrats to our winners for this month!

Don’t forget next month we’re having our first Story Telling Slam! What’s the difference you ask? Good question! Look for more details on the June Storytelling Slam event page, coming soon! Hope to see everybody there!
