Mass LEAP's Annual Youth Poetry Festival
Urgent Community Announcement. Due to health and safety concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Wicked Loud 2020 Youth Poetry Festival was canceled. Mass LEAP is currently working in partnership with the Social Justice Center of Emerson College to produce a digital series in April of 2021, with the hopes and expectations of coming back together as a community live in 2022.
Announcements and registration links will be released on March 1st for April digital events planned for April 10th and 11th. For more information: contact
After a year-long festival hiatus in 2019, after numerous conversations around re-imagining what our annual festival can be and what it can become, Mass LEAP renamed our annual youth poetry festival. We plan on producing a virtual festival series for April 2021. More announcements soon!
After an open call for submissions and many talented artists offered their interpretations, our Wicked Loud Logo was designed by Sarah Gordon, who participated in our 2018 Youth Poetry Festival as part of the team representing Grub Street.
