This month will be a year since I started holding youth forums as part of Young People Insight, transitioning from simply being a blog and officially kicking off the youth platform. Celebrating our first birthday will coincide with Poetic Insight, our first event of the year and the first of our monthly poetry nights.
Poetic Insight will give young poets an opportunity to showcase their talent, while speaking their mind and making their voices heard. This is another avenue for your young people to have their say, rather than simply coming to the forums, as not everyone articulates their thoughts and views in the same way.
The theme for this month’s Poetic Insight will be ‘Celebration and Moving Forward’, and it will be taking place on January 17th in Matthews Yard. Doors open at 7pm, with performances starting at 7.15pm and the event concluding at about 9pm.
There are still opportunities for young poets to perform on the night, so if you want to share your poetry or perform spoken word, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07910092565.
This is a free event that you won’t want to miss, so get ready for a night of inspiring poetry. Let us know you’re coming by getting your tickets for Poetic Insight here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/poetic-insight-celebration-moving-forward-tickets-30953595036?utm_term=eventname_text
