Happy New Year beautiful people! I hope the start of 2018 has been good for you and that great things will be in store for you this year. Unfortunately, I’ve started of this year with the flu, combined with feelings of stress and self-doubt, but I’m fighting to believe in myself and put plans in place to make this the best year for Young People Insight yet.
January 2018 means that we have come to two years of YP Insight, which honestly blows my mind. I cannot believe that YP Insight has been going for two years as a physical platform after the foundations of the blog were set. We’ve been able to enjoy a whole host of thought-provoking conversations, plenty of powerful poetry and some fun-filled socialising. I just know that 2018 is going to bring a whole lot more of that.
We’ll be starting off the year with The Kickback on January 16th, when we’ll be celebrating two years of YP Insight. As this is a special occasion, this will be no ordinary edition of The Kickback.
Not only will the event be longer, running from 6.30-9pm, but we’ll be welcoming a number of special guests who have played a part in my journey of setting up YP Insight and helping it to become what it is now. They’ll also be telling you a little bit about the work they do, making this an event that you do not want to miss. You can register for the event here: http://bit.ly/kickback-celebrating2years
The celebrations don’t stop there though. We’ll be celebrating our second birthday at Poetic Insight as well, which I am especially excited about after the amazing celebration of our first birthday at Poetic Insight in 2017.
This won’t be an ordinary edition of Poetic Insight either, as rappers and singers are invited to take to the stage, as well as poets and spoken word artists. If you would like to perform, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message to 07910092565. But if you would just like to watch or are still thinking about performing, you can get for your free tickets here: http://bit.ly/poeticinsight-celebrating2years
I’m really happy that YP Insight has reached two years and I would love for you all to come and celebrate, so you can share the happiness with me. I hope to see you at The Kickback, Poetic Insight or both. Have a great 2018.
