About Louder Than A Bomb

Louder Than A Bomb (LTAB) Baltimore is a chapter of a national youth poetry slam festival that serves over 10,000 students! LTAB Baltimore engages 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. LTAB 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. For more information about the program check out our LTAB Program Summary.
