Teens Gather at SLANT Launch Party

Teen writers from a variety of high schools met at the Nashville Public Library for the official launch of SLANT. The room was filled with a low din as people introduced themselves, grabbed some food, and talked about writing. Then, after a brief introduction to the program and announcements of upcoming activities, original poetry was performed by teen writers Alex Morgan, Ihuoma Ohanaka, Henry Hicks, and Lagnajita Mukhopadhyay.
