MEDIA REVIEWS
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, these poets have done an incredible job at showing why vulnerability can help us connect and empower. It serves as a beautiful introduction to anyone wanting to explore the spoken word poetry in its written form. -- Jaspreet Kaur, award-winning poet and author of Brown Girl Like Me
A life-affirming and transformative collection, curated by a huge talent -- Aisha Bushby, author of A Pocketful of Stars
Our testers hadn't heard of slam poetry before and, if they're honest, were a little hesitant that a book of poetry could speak to them, but their preconceptions were soon proved wrong and they were blown away by the powerful prose in this book. 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. -- Sarah Dawson * The Independent *
