Do you know of any young people interested in performing poetry?

The first ever national young person’s poetry slam will take place this year, with Scotland leading on a unique model to deliver slam poetry across the country and in doing so provide increased access to poetry for young people aged 12- 14 years.

Over the coming weeks the search is on for groups to take part in a series of workshops, culminating in the regional slams in Edinburgh and Stirling during September and October, with the runners up of each regional event coming together to compete at the Slam Final, at the Beacon in Inverclyde. 

Dyslexia Scotland is one of the partners behind this exciting venture. We'd love to see young people with dyslexia joining in.
