Asia House Poetry Slam

asia house poetry slam 2019 is open!

Closed, re-opening late 2020.

London’s Spread the Word is once again partnering with Asia House to find the best new poetry talent among spoken word artists aged 18-25.

This year’s judges are poet and artist Imtiaz Dharker and Theresa Lola, the third Young People’s Laureate for London.

The judges will select eight aspiring poets and spoken word artists aged 18 – 25 to perform their work live at the slam, crown a winner of the overall event and perform some of their poetry.
