Comment

Hello all Kickstarter Backers!

Many of you know, but for those who do not!

Mass LEAP and Mass Poetry are proud to announce that the inaugural 2012 Louder than a Bomb Massachusetts Youth Poetry Slam Festival is kicking off THIS WEEKEND at MIT in Cambridge! 

We could not have done this without your support and generosity.

16 Youth Poetry Slam Communities are converging this Saturday at the MIT Stratton Student Center for 8 preliminary poetry slam matches. Top 8 ranked teams advance to perform the next day, April 1st, at the MIT Stata Center!

Finals Night for the 2012 LTAB Tournament will be Friday Evening, April 13th, at the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts in Boston's South End!

Find out more details at www.massleapcollective.org

Many of you wonderful donors have gotten further involved with this festival, either coaching youth poets, to planning to volunteering. We're excited to be creating this community with you! For those who've been out of touch, we cordially invite you to join us this weekend to witness these 100 youth poets (many of whom are performing for the first time!) share their stories, connect with each other and launch, what we expect to become a true Massachusetts Institution!
