SLAMbassadors is The Poetry Society’s national youth poetry slam championships. Each year we search for the next generation of spoken word artists, rappers and MCs.
2018’s programme has been launched and this year we’re offering opportunities to rising spoken word stars, rappers, MCs and performers aged 13-18, and 13-25. To find out more, visit the SLAMbassadors website.
Watch the winners of the 2017 SLAMbassadors competition for inspiration.
SLAMbassadors also runs a targeted workshop programme in education settings across the country. These sessions aim to engage young people with poetry and uncover new talent.
I was drifting. SLAMbassadors picked me up, and dropped me down with a newfound zeal and confidence… I felt powerful for maybe the first time in my life.
