The kids are alright, innit? This month's Utter! showcases the under-21s currently ripping up the script on London's spoken word scene. We could call them stars of tomorrow, but really they're already the stars of today!

ASHNA SARKAR: Ridiculously talented, dates, drugs & teenage love as published in Rising magazine...
MELV: Not quite a youth but winner of last month's ajar mic contest, exquisite poetry on old-skool hugs, bad egg exes and the changing language of dem yoof dem (wiv whom she's definitely down, innit?)
