Youth Night

Youth Night: Open Mic and PYPM Slam Season:


Every third Saturday of the month, PYPM hosts a youth-led open mic and poetry slam for teens to come and share their work in a safe, uncensored environment.

  • Youth must be between the ages of 13-19 in order to participate in the slam.
  • Points accrued throughout the season go towards semis/finals, which determine the six youth who will represent Philadelphia at Brave New Voices International Poetry Festival.
  • All who wish to participate in the slam must register and sign up each month the Monday prior to the slam.  Sign up is posted at 7:00 p.m.
  • All youth must register for the season:  Click here to register for the 2015 – 2016 season
