A summer to remember

the journey to Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival in Berkeley, California with 11 talented teenage poets representing DC.

the first-ever Louder Than A Bomb – DMV Teen Poetry Slam Festival here in DC with 12 school slam teams coming together in an awesome day of fellowship and spoken word.

the National Poetry Slam in Charlotte, North Carolina.

the many cyphers and open mics and slams and shows and stories.
the late nights and long weekends.
the road trips and shows.
the dance parties and beautiful creations.

the break dancers from Brazil visiting us through the U.S. State Dept. and writing poetry with the DC Youth Slam Team.

the cook outs, BBQ’s, potlucks, brunches, and dinners.

the new friends. the old friends come back again. the unexpected meetings and coincidences.

the couches. the crashing. the heat and the sun.

it’s been an amazing summer of 2012.

september promises to keep the amazing coming.
