Youngsters who enjoy telling stories, rap or poetry, are being invited to attend the Littleport Spoken Word Workshop and Slam on June 20.

Hosted by poet Hollie McNish and freestyle rap champion Inja, the workshop will give 13-16-year-olds the chance to tell stories and write lyrics with some of the best spoken word artists in the country.

Hollie McNish is a regular performer at Glastonbury Festival, on Channel 4, BBC Radio 1 Extra and at festivals and events around the world. She was UK Slam champion in 2009 too.

Inja has toured the world with major hip hop, drum n bass, dubstep and grime artists, as well as being a lyrical wizard when it comes to freestyling.

He also hosts the UK and World DMCs – the world’s biggest DJ Championships.
