"First Ever" Scottish Youth Poetry Slam

Are You Part of a Youth Group or a Youth Organisation (aged between 12 & 14 years of age), and would you like your group to take part in the "First Ever" Scottish Youth Poetry Slam?

The first ever national young person’s poetry slam will take place this year to provide increased access to poetry for young people.

Over the coming weeks the search is on for groups to take part in a series of workshops. There will be regional slams in Edinburgh and Stirling during September and October, and a Slam Final at the Beacon in Inverclyde.

The idea for the project came from poet and writer Anita Govan and it builds on eleven years of her working with conFAB, delivering poetry slams.  The Scottish Youth Poetry Slam is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland Open Project Funding.
