Kate Tempest

In 2013 she won the Ted Hughes Award for her work Brand New Ancients.[2] Life and work[edit] Tempest grew up in Brockley, South East London, one of five children. She describes growing up in "a shitty part of town, but in a nice house where there was always food", and developing her work ethic by seeing her father go from working as a labourer, through night-school to becoming a criminal lawyer by the time she was eight years old.[3] She enjoyed her primary school experience but was unhappy at secondary school. She describes the London marches to call an end to the Iraq war as a point of disillusionment when she saw that the message of millions of people did not change the direction of the war.[3][4][5][6] Tempest first performed when she was 16, at open mic nights at Deal Real, a small hip hop store on Carnaby Street in London's West End.

Slam Poetry Examples – How to Write a Slam Poem

While you’re always welcome to read slam poems, ideally, this form of “spoken word poetry” is best appreciated when heard live during a performance. After all, poetry is meant to be heard, not just read! Many coffee shops, bars, and community centers host poetry slams and invite locals to share their poetry out loud during open mic sessions, so go online to see if there are any upcoming shows in your neighborhood.

Behind the stage, the neon sign that reads “Green Mill” is unlit. It’s another Sunday night at the Green Mill Cocktail Lounge in Chicago, and a poetry slam—no, the Uptown Poetry Slam that has become part of the Mill’s mythic past just as much as gangsters and moonshine—is about to begin. Exploring Language Through Poetry. Poetry supports language learners in exploring the complexity of the English language.

Science and Poetry. Anna Lena Phillips Poetry and science go way back: Over the centuries, they have occasionally gotten together, like old friends who find themselves in the same city and meet up for tea, only to head home the next day and lose touch again. Much has changed since the two disciplines’ earlier encounters—which resulted, for instance, in late-1700s scientific treatises written in poetic form.

Poets who investigate scientific concepts, and scientists tempted by verse, are now crafting work that invites readers into scientific cultures and bodies of knowledge even as it raises questions about the research enterprise. Epic Science. At an international colloquium this September, researchers will tell the story of science poetry’s evolution Anna Lena Phillips The popularization of science is done most often now through nonfiction.

She performs in a fluid sprechtstimme, easing in and out of accents and personas, casually adding various musical accompaniments from time to time: she forces the knob on a toddler's toy music box, galloping through the lullabye at a hectic gait, then backs off, plinking it forward in little tonal constellations; she reaches down, offscreen, to plunk a guitar note or stroke the strings behind the nut, producing glassy little accents; her foot settles into a restless and insistent rhythm that resonates through the room.
