Kid, I Wrote Back is London’s most diverse, eclectic, and progressive poetry and spoken word open-mic night.
School’s no longer out for the summer. We’re back from our holiday and with a new school year in place - congratulations, you’re now in Year 3. And haven’t you grown? Your report card said you were pretty good at poetry. But poetry doesn’t get girls. So shame you suck at sports. Last time saw a relay race of poets and writers in homage to the games. (We loved them, FYI.) We’re back, business as usual, and you can expect more of the exceptional and nuts value for money (if we say so ourselves) talent that gets on and off our stage. Unique in it’s offering of established spoken-word artists, writers and musicians, alongside those who wrote a poem for the first time ever on the bus up, there is no hierarchy here. And almost anything goes.
KID, is a platform for all poets and spoken word artists. It is the brainchild of Chimène Suleyman, a writer and poet, and host Dylan Sage, a writer and emcee who has entertained with the likes of The Nextmen and Breaking Bread.
