Opening #VERVE2023 is our second Birmingam Schools Slam Final! We’ve invited fifteen local Primary Schools to bring a team of their best poets to this exciting competition hosted and facilitated by Brummie gem and VERVE Poetry Press poet Giovanni ‘Spoz’ Esposito! But there’s more! Our judges will consist of two local poets well versed (get it!) in the art of children’s poetry – Emma Purshouse & Dreadlock Alien. Both poets will deliver a short and entertaining set of their work and act as judges. Come and support the poetry stars of the future through their first ever poetry slam!
