The 8th March was a historic moment for the history of spoken word poetry. Spoken Word Educators and Academic Researchers (SWEAR) is born! Writers, performers, educators, researchers, reviewers and poetry activists met at UniSlam, Birmingham to establish spoken word poetry in higher education.
SWEAR is founded on a motivation to support the scene and the work of poets in their communities.

Thoroughly enjoyed launching my book Stage Invasion in Bristol. After my talk we had performances and a panel debate. For that I thank Visuule Kanessa Chris Redmond and Lucy English . It was chaired brilliantly by the host Danny Pandolfi of Raise the Bar, a perfect combination of intellect and joy. Thanks all who came.
Special thanks to filmmaker Lindford Lowe for his expertise as well as that of sound producer Paul Richardson and, of course, the virtuosity of Robin Timmis on violin
