Wordsmith 2014 schools Poetry project looks set to be our most rewarding year to date. Wordsmith has bought together four schools and two 6th form colleges for 10 weeks of intense researching, writing and rehearsing based on the theme of War to coincide with the WW1 centenary.
Stuns new studio space will be the venue for our showcase, as well as young people’s poetry there will be music performances from Ione-Mai who at the age of 23 already has artists such as Ruby Turner and Damon Albarn and Errol Brown on her CV, UK Rap PA’s from two of our coaches Lyricalligraphy and Dyslexis and a stunning poetry performance from actor Sean Cearnow.
Wordsmith is now in its fifth year and has established itself as a vibrant performance poetry organisation catering for young people’s urge to explore, express and make sense of their fast changing challenging world. This year’s performances will showcase raw poetic talent of students from Chorlton High, Loreto High, Burnage Media Arts College and WRHSG and Xaverian.
