Forward Poetry teams up with Channel 4

Recently we have been supporting and working with Channel 4 on a poetry competition called Random. Channel 4 launched this competition based on the Spoken Word poetry form to support the TV show 'Random' which is being aired on 23rd August 2011. The winning poet will have the exciting opportunity to have their piece performed on Channel 4 after the show.

Channel 4 received over 400 entries for this great competition. On the 8th August Forward Poetry and Channel 4 came together to pick the top 20, which they found challenging but rewarding as there were many great pieces submitted. Mark Grist, our poet in residence, was part of the judging team who decided on the winner!

Check out two useful Spoken Word articles featured on the Channel 4 website: 'What is Spoken Word Poetry?' and 'Writing Spoken Word Poetry'.

The show 'Random' is a touching and profound story that follows, over the course of a single day, an ordinary family's routine shattered by a random act. Filming of this starts on the 11th August 2011 and will be broadcast on the 23rd August 2011, don't forget to tune in!

Mark Grist performed his Spoken Word piece, 'Girls Who Read' at Channel 4. Check it out!

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
