Awards & competitions | Scottish Youth Poetry Slam – Confab

Closing date:
31 October 2018
For more information:

The Scottish Youth Poetry Slam, a bi-annual competition encouraging young people to embrace language through poetry and spoken word, has launched a series of workshops in schools across the country.  Now in its 2nd year, the project invites young people from the whole of Scotland to take part in music, poetry and performance workshops leading up to Scottish Youth Poetry Slam 2018. This year’s event has a unique addition:  a collaboration with Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) who will create music to go along with the poetry to be performed at the live final.

The workshops will take place across the country – from Inverness to Kelso – over the next two months and regional heats will take place in Stirling and Inverness in early October, with the live final taking place at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock on 31st October 2018.
