"Slam It"

Young people from Greenfield Community College and Chilton Community Primary School have been creating their own poetry and performing it in a slam off style competition. In 2012 the groups worked within school and with performance poets Kate Fox and Alfie Crow to get imaginative, get confident and get performing. They were masters of words! The project allowed young people to have their own voice and grow in confidence as they shared their own words in their slam event.


We are pleased to announce that "Slam It" will return to Greenfield and Chilton in 2013, with 2 weeks of students writing and practising their poetry, followed by a finale "Slam" event in December 2013 with performance poet Kate Fox acting as judge and MC - we are looking forward to hearing this year's poets!
