$2 suggested donation. No one turned away due to lack of funds.

This month, NOYOM features Dillard University’s Blue Ink Slam team.

Open to 7th-12th grade students in the Greater New Orleans area (or young people who are out of school but fall within this age group), #NOYOM provides a stage and space for young people to explore themselves, to share their writing and experiences with their peers, and to support one another in their artistic endeavors. NOYOM currently takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the Ashé Cultural Arts Center.

     NOYOM is a collective of Greater New Orleans-area youth, poets, educators, and activists whose mission is to provide enriching youth literary experience, create safe spaces for youth expression, elevate youth voices, and cultivate a sustainable literary culture for the next generation.
