Houston, Texas; On January 28, 2017 SBAO will be holding Auditions to select twenty poets for the forty poet line-up for the Festival. This Audition will be held at the Alief Campus at Houston Community College in hopes to introduce new talented poets to the Slam stage. Savannah Blue Arts and Outreach Executive Director Savannah Blue quoted, “I would like to have a diversity in topics of poetry and broaden our spectrum for new inspiring poets to get their opportunity to be heard.”
The forty poet line-up that has been set for this Festival will be determined by the twenty poets that will be invited by Savannah Blue to perform, and then the remaining twenty poets will be selected by judges during the Audition held. This Audition has been announced to the public so therefore every poet interested can have the opportunity to participate.
The partnership with Houston Community College has given SBAO opportunities to invite some of the college students to get involved with The Bayou City Poetry Slam Festival and welcome them into the artistry of Poetry Performance.
We cordially invite anyone to join us
