Poetry Club Member Leyla Valdez (Poetry Club meets EVERY Thursday after school in C-116.) wrote “How To” as a way “to talk about my experience in a way that might help other people.” Poetry does that. It helps you get memories out of you that need to come out. It also helps others connect with you on an emotional level that really can’t be found in any other artistic medium. Leyla also decided to submit her poem to the Words, Beats, and Life Virtual Slam. She now has a chance to perform at the WB&L Grand Slam in the near future. If she makes the WB&L team, she will get to compete at Brave New Voices this July in SAN FRANCISCO….CALIFORNIA!!!!

Are you a POET? Try out for the WB&L team! (Why not?) The DEADLINE is Saturday, April 15th. More information: here.
