WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF THIS YEAR'S 

LARGEST POETRY EVENT IN THE CAROLINAS!!!


Saturday, March 10 - Sunday, March 11


Youth poets from across the Carolinas will descend upon Charlotte, North Carolina for this life-changing opportunity to meet and socialize with many other teen writers just like them, perform their art in ways that express who they are and how they experience the world, and share stories and ideas on how to use poetry as an agent of change in their home communities.  This will be the first time that poets from both sides of the border gather  to celebrate their connection through creativity and poetry.
