2018 Brave New Voices Judges Sign-up
Thank you for your interest in judging at this year's Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival! To help us keep our team of judges diverse for each bout, please provide us the information below.

Judges are one of our most critical roles in the slam; they help determine which poets will move onto bigger stages to be heard by bigger audiences. Judges should think of themselves as encouragers of the 13-19 year old writers. The key is fairness and consistency. Please note that prior experience is not necessary for judging; we will provide you useful framework and guidelines to help this role become a great experience for you.

All Brave New Voices poetry slam bouts will be held Thursday, July 19th and Friday, July 20th
> Thursday, July 20th bouts (9AM-12:30pm) will be held @ University of Houston
> Friday, July 20th Morning and afternoon bouts (8AM-4:30PM) will be held @ University of Houston

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Brave New Voices Culture and Execution Lead, Gabriel Cortez at gcortez@youthspeaks.org
