The Take Over

Are you a young poet looking to take the next step in your career? Do you want to start hosting or facilitating, but don't know how? The Take Over is here for you!

The Take Over is looking for ambitious young poets in East London to join our summer development programme.

  • Develop your poetry skills

  • Learn all about event planning

  • Design and host your own live poetry event

To learn more and get involved, come to our open day:

Saturday 13 July - 2pm-5pm - The White House

Meet fellow young poets, write and share some poetry, and learn all about the opportunities The Take Over is offering.

Through weekly workshops from July to September, you will design and host your own unique live poetry event at The White House, Dagenham, developing key skills and contacts every modern poet needs. The Take Over is free and open to young poets at all levels of experience.
