A rare opportunity to see some of the finest emerging writers from both sides of the Atlantic

We bring together an amazing array of talented, creative and community-minded writers from Chicago and London curated by Chicago Spoken Word Educator, Malika’s Kitchen founding member and Golden Shovel Anthology co-editor, Peter Kahn. 

Featured poets include, from the United States, the National Youth Poet Laureate of the United States, Patricia Frazier, the Youth Poet Laureate of Chicago, Kara Jackson and former Scholastic Arts Midwest Youth Poet Laureate and current Northwestern University MFA/MA candidate, Natalie Richardson. 

They are joined by former Young People’s Poet Laureates of London, Caleb Femi and Aisling Fahey, and Rachel Long, Young People’s Poet Laureate of London finalist and founder of Octavia Poetry Collective for Women of Colour.  

Presented by a special guest, the poets read from their work in a rare opportunity to see some of the finest emerging writers from both sides of the Atlantic.

In partnership with The Royal of Society of Literature, Young Chicago Authors and Spread the Word
