Spoken Word and Short Film with Joelle Taylor

Working alongside the critically acclaimed Spoken Word artist Joelle Taylor, our WoW Young Writers learnt all about creating their own poetry pieces, exploring the different ways in which poetry could be placed on the page, mic, or the stage.

Having created their own spoken word pieces our WoW Young Writers worked with film-makers Amber Akaunu and Catherine Garvey to move the words from the page to the screen creating a series of short films all shot by our WoW Young Writers.
