The Fountain City Slam offers literary arts education programs during the school day, in the after-school hours, on weekends and evenings, while also providing numerous opportunities for youth to be published and heard. Open to youth of all backgrounds. We use creative writing and the performing arts as a means of self expression and exploration. Students have experienced the benefits of this free auxiliary arts education in their intellectual, personal, and social development. Our curriculum fosters anti-bullying, anti-drugs, suicide prevention, crime prevention, and positive behaviors in the young people we work with. We provide space and spirit for fellowship among  young writers across the Columbus, Georgia area.
