Founded in Norfolk, VA and transplanted in Atlanta with its artistic creator, Rough Language is a quarterly Poetry competition that brings 15 poets from around the country to battle it out for $500-$1,000. A winner takes all competition. We market to the working class that normally wouldn't frequent a poetry night but are looking for something fulfilling. We are a people for the people, organization with a demographic that stretches across color, gender, race, and religious lines.
