Savannah Blue Arts and Outreach is a nonprofit arts organization established by poet Savannah Blue as an expression of her love for performance poetry. In 2007 Savannah Blue began participating in open mics in and around the Houston area. Then she discovered Houston Poetry Slam which organized the competitive form of performance poetry called "poetry slams". She won a place on the Houston Slam Team and competed at the National Poetry Slam in Florida and was enthralled by the level of the poetry and performances. She resolved to bring an annual event to Houston that presented performnce poets from across the nation.
. The first Bayou City Poetry Slam was a resounding success. Savannah Blue Arts and Outreach now seeks to extend the positive effect and influence of performance poetry through workshops for youth and adults
