“It gave me confidence and taught me lots of valuable lessons as a writer and on a more personal level. When I am surrounded by other poets and spoken word artists I become more creative, determined and active so it helped me in that respect too. To top it off my CV looks great because of what I did during and after as a result of the Slam! If it wasn’t for that I might not have got into university”.
