Poetry Slam details

Creating a life in Los Angeles can be overwhelming when juggling friends, lovers, work, personal time, etc. Many times it leaves us feeling scattered and filling our time with distractions that don't necessarily enhance our own lives. Taking a step back to re-assess personal boundaries, declaring wants and needs, and allowing yourself permission to be self-aware can help engage the community from a place of confidence and honesty.
