It's time to reclaim poetry.

Collected by international poetry sensation Nikita Gill, SLAM! You're Gonna Wanna Hear This is a joyful celebration of the ground-breaking poets making their voices heard in the spoken word scene.

Empowering, inspiring and often hilarious, SLAMs are a platform for well-known and emerging talent from all walks of life where every style of poetry has a home.

With poets such as Raymond Antrobus, Sophia Thakur and Dean Atta guest starring alongside up-and-coming poets, this is the perfect introduction to the world of modern poetry. Each poet will introduce their poem, tell you a little bit about themselves and give you a tip for preparing brilliant performance poetry.

SLAM was one of the best poetry collections I’ve read in a long time. With some poems leaving me in tears and others imparting feelings of joy.
A life-affirming and transformative collection, curated by a huge talent
Buy for your teenager, buy for yourself – basically buy a copy for everyone you know and introduce them to the incredible talent of voices that urgently need to be heard.
