There are just six spots up for grabs on the Meta-Four Houston slam poetry team, and teens from around the city will do their best to snag one at the Writers in the Schools Space City Grand Slam. The participants — poets, writers, rappers — have already been through the preliminary competitions, and each will perform his or her best written work at the Slam. The six teens with the highest scores become the Meta-Four Houston team and go on to the Annual Brave New Voices International Festival. Expect explosive performances.
