Briana Tomlinson

Poet Briana Tomlinson, 16 (who turned 17 during the competition), is a junior at Kenwood Academy and competed in Louder Than a Bomb 2011 as a member of team Epic Sound representing her high school.

Her piece, Testimony, is as she explains it: ‘a piece about a female who murders a close friend but for the better.’

Though everyone knows the points are not the point – the point is the poetry – congratulations to Kenwood Academy’s Epic Sound, who was chosen as one the four Teams advancing to the Final round of the 2011 competition which celebrated over 600 young writers.
