I only went and did my poem lying on the floor, didn’t I! It surprised everyone and had people getting up out of their seat to get a better look at me. The poem itself went down really well and had people laughing and feeling engaged. The night itself was extraordinary with every poet bringing their A game. It was truly a night of titans. We were all pushing each other to perform our best and it really showed in the variety of form, content, delivery and energy.

I’m thinking that I won’t do BYP again, having taken the programme as far as I think it will take me but there’s an alumni program looming in the horizon, so it’s not the end, just the start of a new chapter.
