Poet-Linc featuring Curtis High School (Staten Island)


Join us for this vibrant battle of words celebrating talented young artists from the five boroughs performing their original poetry to the theme “I have a voice.” For five Wednesdays, the Atrium will be jam-packed with readings by professional guest poets and three rounds of competitions that will be judged by appointed members of the audience and three official judges. All of this will lead to an exhilarating Grand Slam performance at the Target Free Thursday on December 13 to determine the first ever Lincoln Center Poet-Linc Grand Slam Champion.

Curtis High School serves 2,600 students on Staten Island’s North Shore. Overlooking New York Harbor, the city skyline, and the Statue of Liberty, their students have been inspired to touch the world through art, drama, music and the written and spoken word for more than one hundred years. The Curtis Writer’s Club brings together a group of young people who wish to develop pieces for publication in the school literary magazine, Kaleidoscope, or outside publications and forums.
