Writing on the Wall (WoW) are Liverpool’s longest running literature and writing charity.

WoW are a regional partner for the national I Know I Wish I Will project which is an attempt at creating and performing the world’s longest-running youth-led spoken word poem. As part of this we are hosting a CPD session for teachers and to run their own poetry slam events in schools. A poetry slam is a competitive poetry competition where poets read their work to an audience and panel of selected judges, they are a vibrant and thriving aspect of the spoken word scene.

Led by award-winning spoken word poet and slam host Ciarán Hodgers, teachers will get practical advice and training on how best to run exciting and easy poetry slam competitions.
