Barbican Young Poets' Showcase 2017

24 March 2017 / 19:00
Milton Court Theatre

An evening of poetry that celebrates the work developed by the 2016/2017 Barbican Young Poets.

Over the last six months poets and mentors have crafted a portfolio of work demonstrating the range of talent nurtured in the programme. The showcase gives the poets the opportunity to perform their work to a live, supportive audience.

The Barbican Young Poets are a group of inspirational emerging writers who meet fortnightly at the Barbican to sharpen their writing and performance skills under the guidance of internationally renowned poet and performer Jacob Sam-La Rose and poet and co-tutor Rachel Long.
