Brave New Voices
In 2013, the Detroit youth poetry slam team headed to Brave New Voices (BNV), the international youth poetry slam festival, held 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 partnered with InsideOut to help send teh 2013 team team to the Brave New Voices festival. Brave New Voices is part of WDET's Summer Of Kids.
