Creative Team member Colin Matty, man of many talents already revealed here at WordsWorth, shared his long running and successful run with spoken word and slam competitions. He invited young poets to sign up and participate in WordsWorth’s first ever Poetry Slam. Nine young poets shared three poems each.
Thanks to Emmanuel, Alyssa, Bethan, Mary, Brett, Jamie, Sebastien, Sage, Erin and to Michaela who began the first set as the sacrificial poet. Their poems were serious, funny, sad, profound and above all, engaging.
And it is unanimous. We will do this again next year.
