In 2021, Santa Clara County will announce its first Youth Poet Laureate, will it be you?
We are launching Santa Clara County's first Youth Poet Laureate program in a big way, with a celebration of poetry and teen voices in a Teen Open Mic event.
Teens interested in sharing their own performance of music, poetry, comedy, or a dramatic reading can sign up here.
This SCC Youth Poet Laureate and Teen Open Mic Event will be held on Friday, December 4th at 5:00 PM live on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SCCLD
The Santa Clara County Youth Poet Laureate program is a new youth-centered program to celebrate literacy and self-literacy through poetry and connect young writers to opportunities for performances and community collaborations.
This event will officially launch the SCC Youth Poet Laureate program and celebrate teen voices with a Teen Open Mic event as well as community poets doing readings.
The event will be hosted by current Santa Clara County Poet Laureate, Janice Sapigao.
