Where are you?

The pilot period of SLAMbassadors UK is racing to a close – so if you have been watching the progress of the performance poets, rappers, beatboxers and emcees and think you can do as well or better THEN GET IN TOUCH!

It’s easy. Just record a short film of yourself on your mobile phone or camcorder and forward the finished vision to jtaylor@poetrysociety.org.uk and we will take it from there. We are not looking for professional polished films, just your raw words, and either shots of you performing or images that support and enhance your poetry/rap.

It’s really down to you. You can either wait for us to stumble across you or you can actively seek us out. Come on! Get in touch!
