If you love drama and poetry, then the Aber Writing Fest Youth Poetry Slam workshop is a must. Just come along and be prepared to write a poem, rehearse it and then slam in front of an appreciative audience. The winner will receive a special certificate and a prize.

Glenn Carmichael and Claire Williamson have been running poetry slam workshops and hosting slams since 1994. They will teach you everything you need to know to write a brilliant poem and coach you so you’re ready to perform in the poetry slam which will take place at the end of the workshop.

Glenn recently toured with SW Collective: ‘Flash’ a spoken word show about moments, and ‘Count Me In’ a promenade spoken word and visual show based in a bingo hall.

Claire is author of Visiting the Minotaur (Seren, 2018) and three other poetry collections. Claire’s poetry has been highly commended and she is adoctoral candidate at Cardiff University.
