Dallas Youth Poets

Dallas Youth Poets exists to provide a platform for student poets age 14-19 in the greater Dallas area to gather and be heard and respected. We seek to provide a safe space in every sense of the words where young poets from every corner of the DFW area can gather to teach each other and learn from each other and work with mentors to help them hone their craft as poets, writers, readers, performers, and thinkers. We do not include the word slam in our name, because we realize that slam is a beautiful trick to fool people into listening to our poetry.

At Dallas Youth Poets, poetry is our mission. We seek to empower young poets to write poems that might change themselves, their communities, or the world entire.
