This event is sold out


All welcome, but the stage belongs to young people (14-30) from across South Yorkshire & beyond.

If you write poems, tell stories, compose lyrics, spit bars, or have anything to say out loud to a supportive audience, this is an evening to celebrate your words in a warm, inclusive atmosphere.

We’ll also be launching our 2023 young writers’ anthology featuring fiction and poetry from young and emerging writers from across the north.

Open and supportive of all, both new & experienced performers. For more information, and to reserve a slot see below

Organised by HIVE South Yorkshire

In partnership with Off the Shelf Festival of Words and The Department of Media & Culture at Sheffield Hallam University

Supported by Arts Council England
