DewMore Baltimore Youth Poetry League and Festival

 About DewMore Baltimore Youth Poetry League and Festival 

The DewMore Baltimore Youth Poetry League and Festival (Formerly Louder Than a Bomb-Baltimore) The league and festival engage youth in middle schools, high schools and churches in the power of poetry. Poets receive monthly dynamic writing and performance workshops from acclaimed artists that will expose poets to complex concepts,  advanced vocabulary and critical analysis. The program creates a safe space for poets to explore who they are and where they are from on a local and national platform. Using slam a vehicle to self discovery, poets exercise the art of "truth-telling." With the support of the school's lead coach, a teaching artist and a community of writers,  every moment of development - from the page to stage -  is guaranteed to be a transformational experience.
