Mass LEAP's Youth Poetry Festival
Urgent Community Announcement. Due to health and safety concerns from Covid-19, Corona virus. Wicked Loud 2020 is postponed until further notice.
“You have no idea how changed some of my students are as a result of being in this program. They have found their voices and their confidence. They have been welcomed into a community, which is new for many of them. They have also been made aware of the importance of hearing different voices, of paying attention to the problems others face. It is definitely something I would like other schools in our area to have the opportunity to see and experience. Your work is truly changing the lives of many young people who need it.“
- Shannon Janovitz, English Dept. Burlington High School
#LTABMA took a one year hiatus in 2019, so that Mass LEAP could re-engage with the community, bolster it's operational capacity to sponsor future festivals and guarantee long term sustainability. We appreciate the community's patience as we take steps to re-organize, re-imagine and embark on a festival that can better serve our community.
