Performance: WordPlay's Freshhhh Heat Teen Open Mic & Poetry Lounge

Freshhhh Heat is a monthly open mic and poetry slam put on by Forward Arts' WordPlay Teen Writing Project for teens ages 13-19.  The poetry slam is an Olympic-style poetry competition where poets are judged on a scale from 0-10 on the merit of the writing and performances of their original work. The open mic is an opportunity for poets to perform in a non-competitive format.
