Upcoming Events

Louder Than A Bomb - Tacoma

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word
The Tacoma Teen Poetry Festival (LTAB-Tacoma) comes to Tacoma for the third year in a row, showcasing poetry written by teens in the regional area. The single-day event features over 75 participants between the ages of 13 and 19, all of whom are from Tacoma and surrounding Pierce County cities. LTAB-Tacoma is a friendly poetry slam competition where “the points are not the point, the point is the poetry.” LTAB-Tacoma will take place at Tacoma Community College (6501 S. 19th St., Building 11) and begins at 9 a.m. The original and wildly popular Louder Than a Bomb (LTAB) festival was founded in 2001 in Chicago by Young Chicago Authors, a non-profit organization with strong community ties. Since LTAB was founded 17 years ago, over 15 cities in the United States and Canada have started their own LTAB competitions. The City of Tacoma hosted the first LTAB held on the west coast three years ago. This year’s event will begin with preliminary poetry slam bouts at 9 a.m. and noon, followed by finals at 3:30 p.m. There will also be a Poetry Yoga workshop and a Community-wide Open Mic during the day. Throughout the event, young poets and their adult mentors will showcase their poetic talents at the finals, which are open to the public. The program will also include special guest poets, educators and live DJs to create a fun and supportive environment for poets and audience alike. The event is all ages and free, although donations are appreciated. LTAB-Tacoma is presented by Wrtie253 and Tacoma Community College’s Office of Student Engagement and funded by the Tacoma Arts Commission.
