Teen Poetry Event

May 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Free
Overview

Submissions are due by May 11, 2022, 11:59 PM.

MMoCA’s Teen Forum is seeking teenagers aged 14-18 for a Teen Poetry Event, featuring teens interested in spoken word, poetry, and songwriting. They’ll present their works from 1–2 PM on Saturday, May 21, 2022, in the Museum Lecture Hall. Admission to MMoCA is free of charge.

The theme of the event revolves around the concept of “the box,” reflecting the Teen Forum-organized exhibition, Boxed In, now on view at MMoCA. Boxed In explores the theme of “the box,” and how it can define and sometimes confine us in life.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should respond to these questions:

  • What is “the box?”
  • Who is inside “the box?”
  • What happens when “the box” is broken?

Each submission should be no longer than 3 minutes when performed.

Submissions must be received by the Museum by 11:59 PM, May 11, 2022.

Submission Review

The Teen Forum will review the submissions and select up to 10 poets to perform their work. Those selected will receive a $25 honorarium. The Teen Forum Poetry Event will take place on Saturday, May 21, from 1–2 PM, in MMoCA Lecture Hall. Masks are strongly encouraged inside the building.
