Calling all 13 – 16 year olds! If you love telling stories, rap or poetry, then you need to come along to the Littleport Spoken Word Workshop and Slam on Saturday 20th June 2015!

Hosted by internationally-renowned poet Hollie McNish and freestyle rap champion Inja, this workshop will give you the chance to write about what’s important to you, tell stories and write lyrics with some of the best spoken word artists in the country!

Hollie McNish is a regular performer at Glastonbury Festival, on Channel 4, BBC Radio 1 Extra and at festivals and events around the world! She was UK Slam champion in 2009 too!

Inja is a top emcee, touring the world with major hip hop, drum n bass, dubstep and grime artists, as well as being a lyrical wizard when it comes to freestyling. He also hosts the UK and World DMCs – the world’s biggest DJ Championships.
