Speak Up Speak Out

Speak Up Speak Out is an annual youth poetry slam hosted by Mic Check Poetry in Downtown Bryan, Texas every summer offering a total of $850 in prize money. SUSO invites youth poetry teams from across the country to compete with their original poetry in preparation for the international youth slam, Brave New Voices

Our goal in hosting SUSO is to offer a stage for youth voices and encourage them to know that their voice is important. SUSO is a great opportunity for youth poets to grow in not only their art, but in who they are as people. We hope to build a better sense of community for these rising artists as they further their way into the world of Spoken Word. 

Speak Up Speak Out 2016 will take place June 25th at the Grand Stafford Theater and is free to attend. Information on who is hosting and competing, as well as who will be leading workshops, will be released in the following weeks.
