Brave New Voices
Brave New Voices  was created by Youth Speaks Inc  in a non-profit organization from San Francisco promoting youth intellectual and artistic self-development after the inaugural Youth Speaks Teen slam poetry in San Francisco — the first poetry slam dedicated to youth in the world. Since that time, Brave New Voices has grown to represent youth ages 13—19 from all across the United States and several cities and countries from around the world. BNV is the largest ongoing spoken word event in the world. When the festival began only four teams participated, and the competition has since grown to more than 50 teams.
Poets via Post: Advice to Young Poets. We asked a number of noted contemporary poets to deliver a piece of advice for younger poets. They sent in their advice on decorated postcards. Browse postcards and ephemera sent by Eduardo C.
