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.

Our spoken word programme is currently closed but will re-open in 2019.

You can watch the winners of the 2017 SLAMbassadors competition below.
