On August 7th, the Detroit youth poetry slam team heads to Brave New Voices (BNV), the international youth poetry slam festival, held this year in Chicago, IL. Team members are participants in InsideOut Literary Arts Project' Citywide Poets after-school program and have spent years of work preparing for this opportunity. Detroit’s Team placed #4 in the world at the 2011 Brave New Voices Competition. In 2012, the team was not able to attend due to lack of funds. WDET is partnering with Inside Out to help send this year's team to the Brave New Voices festival. Brave New Voices is part of WEDT's Summer Of Kids - Find out how to support the team at wdet.org/kids.
