“The slam exposed me to other poets of the same age and gave me the platform to perform in front of an audience. Coming in to the slam at the age of 16 was the first time I had read out my writing and the enthusiasm and support I got from the other participants pushed me to keep writing and performing. Off the back of the slam I was booked for my first professional gig and have been performing my work regularly since then. If you want to take your work off the page, this slam is one of the best places to learn the craft”.
