Hive Verse Matters Young Writers’ Open Mic
When: Thurs 23 Feb | 7.30pm – 10pm
Where: Theatre Delicatessen, the Moor, Sheffield, S1 4PF
Calling young people (14-25s) from across South Yorkshire! If you write poems, tell stories, compose lyrics, spit bars, or have anything else to say out loud to a supportive audience, this is an evening to celebrate your words, ideas and talents in a warm atmosphere.
Featured young performers (updated soon):
Johnny (AKA J Zill) is a 17 year old, up and coming MC, Poet, Producer and Beat Maker from the Steel City. His style is one that adds to the cement mix of Hip Hop music spewed out of Sheffield and slapped upon every brick and odd stone in the city’s beating heart. You can listen to him here
A partnership with Verse Matters
The first Hive Verse Matters took place in Oct 2016 as a partnership between Hive, Verse Matters and Off the Shelf Festival of Words. The evening was a great success with a whopping 35 young people reading and performing their work!
