Aspiring young poets and lyricists in the Fraser Valley are invited to lelәm´ Arts and Cultural Café and Langley Centennial Museum to take part in Scriptum Vox — the third annual youth poetry slam for poets age 13-18.

On Saturday, May 3, creative youth speakers will gather at lelәm´ from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and take the stage to share their voice.

The top teenage wordsmiths and performers in the Fraser Valley will be decided by five guest judges selected from the audience and receive prizes for their original compositions.

May 3 will also be a buzz of activity at the Fort Langley National Historic Site as they host their Summer Launch and barbecue.

Directly following Scriptum Vox, families can head to the fort and enjoy festivities such as airsoft musket firing, barbecue concession, farm animals, behind-the-scenes tours and free admission from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Spots are still open for young poets to enter Scriptum Vox 2014 by emailing lmasse@tol.ca or calling 604-532-3536.  Entry fees are $5 per competitor and more information can be found at museum.tol.ca.
