MassLEAP poetry slam event coming to the Teen Room!

Dust off your rhymes, guys, because a serious display of skills is on its way, and you have the chance to participate!

Thursday, April 5th in the Teen Room:
Film Screening: 3:00-3:45 P.M.

Demo Slam: 5:00-6:00 P.M.

Open Mic: 6:00-6:30 P.M.*

This spring, Mass LEAP celebrates the very first Louder Than A Bomb festival in Massachusetts.  Louder Than A Bomb was started in Chicago in 2001 by poets Anna West and Kevin Coval.  It's since grown to be the largest teen poetry festival in the world, and even inspired a full-length feature film.

Teaming with Mass Poetry, Mass LEAP will be hosting the event on the MIT campus in Kresge Hall and will also be hosting the 'Student Day of Poetry' in which all youth, competing in the LTAB festival or otherwise, are welcome.  You can find out more about events leading up to the LTAB finals at

*You can stop by the Teen Room and showcase your rhymes for us anytime.
