Fresh Ink Youth Slam is a community organization that educates young writers and poets in the arts of performing and writing  HERE in San Antonio. WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP in sending a team of youth poets to Atlanta, GA in July 2015 for the Brave New Voices poetry festival.  At Brave New Voices, the youth will meet with mentors and other young writers that will help them better their skills.  Your donation will help them get a chance experience at being among other young amazing writers as well as learn from some of the nations top mentors in poetry and creative writing.  

Brave New Voices (BNV) was created by Youth Speaks, Inc in 1998 after the inaugural Youth Speaks Teen Poetry Slam in San Francisco.  Since that time, Brave New Voices has grown to represent youth from all across the United States. BNV also features International teams from Canada, Africa, the Polynesian Islands, and Europe, making it the largest and most diverse ongoing spoken word event in the world.

BNV prides itself on utilizing the festival to host many educational workshops and seminars that the youth poets will participate in. For additional information on previous workshops and the themes they focus on click-Here . 

Our talented youth from San Antonio would like this opportunity to be a part of this five days festival to aid in improving on their already incredible talents but may also have a chance to represent San Antonio, Texas in this national youth poetry slam.  A poetry slam is competitve based performance poetry and only about 50 team will get chosen for the exciting opportunity to compete. San Antonio would love to be chosen to send its very FIRST competeing team. However, not being chosen to compete, does not negate the incredible educational experiences that are still available to them at this festival. 

100% of your donations go to a team of 4-5 kids, getting them registering for the festival, travel, room and board. We greatly appreciate any and all help! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and let's help the youth of San Antonio to do great things.
