UniSlam is the UK National University Poetry Slam & Summit bringing together teams of poets from university communities across the UK and Ireland to take part in a comprehensive programme of development workshops and to compete in one of the most exciting slams in the British spoken word calendar.
UniSlam uplifts the voices and stories of young people, providing a platform for them to be heard on a national level. We champion the importance of creativity in learning and the rights of young people in the UK. UniSlam offers creative and professional development to the next generation of literary talent through our workshops, talks and masterclasses led by industry experts and professional artists.
UniSlam not only supports the talented poets coming up through our universities. We also work with groups of young people who experience various barriers in accessing literature and engage them with poetry in an inspiring way. For more details of our community work, see Get involved.
