|The Ellington Poets Society with Mayhem Poets|
|The BAMcafe stage|
More than two hundred students from all over NYC were invited to this event, but the only student group to take the stage was the Ellington Poets. One member was very inspired by the Mayhem Poets. Byron M. asked Mason Granger, who joined the Mayhem Poets in 2005, about his inspiration for one of his poems. "Do you really love cartoons that much?", asked Byron. "Yea", Granger responded, "I do".
