The Speak Tank is a Tampa born Poetry workshop series that is PSI (nationally) certified and sends individual poets to represent Tampa at the Individual World Poetry Slam and the Woman of the World Poetry Slam.

However, we are also a COMMUNITY focused organization and our foundation will be built in these 3 principles: RESPECT, WRITING, and GROWTH.

We are a SAFE SPACE venue dedicated to helping artists GROW in their writing and performance. A warm and inviting environment looking to encourage new and veteran writers alike to expand their craft and experience the power of speaking YOUR truth!

The Speak Tank Poetry Workshop is held at The Blind Tiger Cafe, Ybor (1901 e. 7th Ave. Tampa) every 2nd and 4th Tuesday @ 6pm. Speak Tank offers a FREE poetry workshop but we do request donations from our participants to help fund our operating costs. DONATIONS ARE NOT REQUIRED! 

We will be hosting poetry slams sporadically throughout the year. There will be an event page made a month before each event to give writers an opportunity to prepare. Slams will be pushing the boundaries and pushing people to be more creative in their writing and performance. Slams will most likely be held at Stageworks Theatre in Channelside.
