"As an English teacher I am emotionally overwhelmed when I attend slams. To see students grades 9-12, poor and wealthy, public and private school, gifted and special needs, all gathering to share the written/spoken word, well, I never imagined such a setting. Each competitor wants to see every other competitor succeed. It is a loving, inspiring community.”
