Young Poets Takeover with Maureen Onwunali

St Andrew Crypt Clinton Rd, Redruth TR15 2LL (opposite The Ladder!) 
Tickets: Free

The Poetry Society’s Young Poets Takeovers are a space for up-and-coming young poets and performers to meet one another and share their work on stage. This Takeover will feature headline sets from Roundhouse Poetry slam champion Maureen Onwunali. If you’re aged 11-25, we want to hear from you, too! Bring a poem and arrive early to sign up for our open mic. And join the community! We invite you to stay on afterwards to meet other young poetry lovers and find out more about Young Poets Network!

Former Roundhouse Poetry Slam champion, and self-proclaimed ‘notes app poet’, Maureen Onwunali uses spoken word as a means of exploring identity, society, and her place in the world. 

We will be hosting a creative writing workshop before the event at 2-5pm, join us to write, prepare for the open mic and meet other young writers! Book onto the free workshop HERE.
