Our Atlanta Word Works team showed up and showed out at the 2017 Brave New Voices Grand Slam Finals in San Francisco.
Ogechi, Tia, Ninel, DeAndre and Jaha Bela stole the show and represented Atlanta to the fullest at the national competition. Out of 600 teen poets and more than 40 teams, we’re proud to say our team of five finished third overall. If you’ve seen them perform or read and watched their poetry on VOXATL.com, you shouldn’t be surprised. But, if you’re new to this awesomeness, take a moment and watch the team play yo-yo with the crowds emotions in the videos below.
