Louder Than a Bomb 2013 Individual Poet Finals

Come on out for the 2013 Individual Poet Finals, taking place Wednesday, March 6th at 7pm at Chicago Cultural Center's Preston Bradley Hall.  Competiting throughout the previous rounds of competition, these are the top individual poets in the city who are working to earn a spot on the 2013 Louder Than a Bomb All-Star Team.

The largest of its kind in the world, Louder Than A Bomb (LTAB) is Chicago’s rapidly-growing teen poetry festival, this year taking place at various venues around Chicago beginning February 16 and continuing through to the finals on March 9, 2013. Aiming to bring teens together across racial, gang, and socio-economic lines, LTAB is a friendly competition that emphasizes self-expression and community via poetry, oral story-telling, and hip-hop spoken word.

This event is now sold out!
Louder Than a Bomb is co-presented by Columbia College Chicago and Vocalo 89.5FM/WBEZ 91.5FM.
