Verses will be showcasing the best of spoken word talent, firstly in the UK, then internationally; the intention is to provide a platform for established and up-and-coming spoken word poets.
Filmed before a live audience, Verses aims to capture the charged atmosphere of poetry slam nights, bringing it into homes across the world via television and online platforms.
We don’t want to censor, we don’t necessarily want to be politically correct, we believe good poetry lies in the midst of honesty and genuine heartfelt thoughts.
Regardless of race, religion, sexuality and gender, we want to hear what poets have to says, we want them to bare their souls on the stage and leave it knowing they spoke their truth as loudly and as honestly as possible.
Verses also aims to bring recognition to hip hop, rap and other music genres of such ilk, as forms of poetry set to music.
