Spoken Word is one of the UK’s fastest growing art forms, and the Roundhouse is fast becoming one of the biggest names on the London scene.

Our annual Poetry Slam and Last Word Festival champions the best in up-and-coming talent alongside professional artists including Kate Tempest and Polarbear.

We’re looking for twelve aspiring young poets to be a part of the new Poetry Collective.

Led by renowned professional poet Bohdan Piasecki, you’ll get the chance to explore your writing and passions to craft and perform original work.

By the end of the year you’ll have strengthened your portfolio and performed on some impressive stages including flagship spoken word nights around London and beyond!

Please note: The project commences on Sunday 12 Oct (not 5 Oct as advertised in brochure)
