Join the UK Slam Champion for a fun, interactive and informative workshop:
Join Sara Hirsch (UK Slam Champion and internationally acclaimed spoken word educator) plus a special guest facilitator for a morning of fun, interactive and informative workshops as part of the Wellington Festival of Slam. Covering everything from writing to performance, these back to back workshops will get even the most rusty of writers scribbling & shouting poetry.

Informal practical workshop:
Perhaps you have a few new poems and need a safe space to try them out? Maybe you want to give performance poetry a try but don’t know where to start?

Or possibly you are competing in the regional slam final that evening and need some last minute practice? Whatever your experience, background and ability, we would love to meet you at these informal sessions.
