The team is headed to Atlanta from July 15 to 18 for the Brave New Voices national poetry competition. The Olympics of spoken word, BNV includes over 500 youth poets from 50 cities across the U. S. At BNV, the Tigertail team will participate in workshops and readings with established poets and performers, in open mike events – and they will compete in the Poetry Slam itself. The Miami team, which includes a diverse range of some of South Florida's best young writers, was chosen from a field of more than 1000 teenagers from local high schools who participated in the WordSpeak and SpeakOut programs.

This year's team is made up of five vibrant Miami-Dade youths: James Balo, Steffon Dixon, Maylin Enamorado, Momo Manalang and Christell Roach – all current students or recent graduates of Miami Arts Charter and Design and Architecture Senior High (DASH).

This event will provide the team with an opportunity to perform before a live audience prior to their Atlanta competition. We're very excited about hearing them all perform together for the first time.
