Detroit’s team of young poets return from an international poetry slam in Chicago over the weekend. WDET’s Laura Weber Davis followed the Citywide Poets from Inside-Out Literary Arts Project in Detroit as they traveled to the four-day “Brave New Voices” festival. As Laura reports, the young poets compete against one another, but the competition is not what matters to the youth in the end.

The Brave New Voices series is part of WDET's Summer of Kids. Learn how you can support the Detroit team and create new opportunities for local youth at
