The 2013 Baton Rouge "Eclectic Truth" Poetry Slam Team is headed to Boston this summer to compete at the annual National Poetry Slam. This competition connects over 500 poets from across the nation for a week of workshops, slam competitions and genre building. Baton Rouge needs your help in securing funds to make the trip to Boston a reality!

Over the last decade, Baton Rouge has sent several teams to the National Poetry Slam. Our teams have made semi-finals on four separate occasions, and ranked as high as 6th in the nation out of 80 competing teams. Our poetry slam community prides itself on sending brilliant, sincere writers and performers to NPS every year. With your help, we will be able to secure travel and lodging expenses. We want to continue shining a light on the beautiful literary arts scene of Baton Rouge, your support will allow us to do so!
