Young Poet Laureate for London

Documenting the London Laureates programme for Spread The Word

The Young Poet Laureate for London scheme is run by Spread The Word, and supports young poets in London with mentoring, commissions and ongoing advice. The role of Young Poet Laureate for London is held by one candidate each year, with the remaining five making up that years 'London Laureates'. Now in it's third year, the project has made a big difference to those who took part, which is captured in this initial film, the first to come from a wider commission to document the project.

Beautiful performances from each of the 2014/2015 London Laureates were also produced. Aisling Fahey(YPL) Laurie Bolger, Rachel Long, Ella Frears, Debris' Stevenson, and Clare Mulley.
