Closed; re-opening summer 2020. Barbican Young Poets is a poetry workshop and community for budding young writers, which gives you the chance to create, craft and perform poetry and spoken word. By the end of the year, you’ll have produced a portfolio of work, contributed to a published anthology, and had experience of performing on the Barbican’s stages and at other poetry venues across London. You can then join the alumni group and develop your skills further, alongside supporting the next generation of Barbican Young Poets. Starting in October, workshops take place every fortnight mostly on Wednesday evenings at the Barbican Centre. You will need to be available for each session. Open to those aged 16-25.
