Louder Than a Bomb Kansas City gives a teenager a pen, a page, a mic and a stage, and steps out of the way to watch a poet emerge and a community grow. It’s an annual city-wide youth poetry festival with a hip-hop aesthetic celebrating young poets in the Kansas City metro. This spring, more than 15 teams compete for the crown. Join us for a series of preliminary bouts with schools from across Kansas City. Full schedule and participating schools can be found online at ltabkc.org.
