Since its founding in 2006, Get Lit has stratospherically demonstrated the power of poetry to spark joy, boldness, creativity, confidence and, above all, literacy in students across the region. Through a classroom curriculum and network of mentors, students are empowered to write and perform their own poems, and this weekend's return of the annual Classic Slam is their chance to rock the stage and your chance to witness — and support — the excellence. Over three days, students from 50 schools compete for the title, with all-day quarter- and semi-finals Thursday and Friday at LATC and the finals at the Ace Hotel on Saturday night.
