About The Word of Mouth Teen Experience:

The brainchild of well-known spoken word artist and activist Larry “LB The Poet” Barron, WOMTE is a spinoff of Word of Mouth Wednesday, a monthly showcase of local spoken word artists and performers. A 2008 graduate of Carver High School, Barron said after connecting with students at Main Street Academy and Winston-Salem Preparatory Academy, he felt the need to create a space where teens can express themselves.

“We wanted to create a safe space for them to express themselves. It’s just something different,” said Barron. “Everybody doesn’t want to party and we don’t need to put that energy into our youth. We need to encourage them to be something different.”

Along with the spoken word showcase, WOMTE also featured a vendor fair of local teen entrepreneurs.

The Word of Mouth Teen Experience will be held on the third Saturday of every month at Arts for Arts Sake headquarters, 630 N. Liberty Street.
