This is a past event.
Our Barbican Young Poets have been developing their skills over the past six months to bring you this showcase; a night of poetry from some of London's most talented wordsmiths
The Barbican Young Poets define themselves poetically in very diverse ways: as performance poets, page poets, spoken word artists, sometimes as rappers. Over the course of the programme, that sense of themselves may have shifted into a new direction, or it may have solidified.
The poets have been working together as a community since October 2017. They have explored a broad range of poetic styles and influences, and have worked with Jacob Sam-La Rose as well as guest tutors including R.A. Villanueva, to push forward and develop their work.
They have produced a portfolio of work that reflects their unique poetic voice, and have selected and edited two poems for their anthology.
Subject to Change: 'I'm Rooting for Everybody Black' by Jeremiah Brown
