Calling all Liverpool poets!

After piloting The Poetry Society’s slam championship in Liverpool last year, SLAMbassadors UK is now nationwide and coming back to the city for more beats and rhymes.

On Saturday 12th September 2009, The Poetry Society is running two workshops with kind support of the Bluecoat, for young people aged 13-19. Liverpool poet Nikki Blaze and SLAMbassadors Co-ordinator Joelle Taylor will run sessions at the Bluecoat to help you start slammin’. You can write your poem then perform it and be filmed and entered into the competition on the day.

To book your place, email: blast-liverpool@bbc.co.uk.

Places are limited so get in quick!
