Join International Slam Champion, Performance Poet, Spoken Word Artist and Writer, Yasmin Ali (AKA ‘Y.A Poet’) as she guides you through the ins and outs of  lyric writing.



Sharpen your lyric writing skills and discover the techniques that have helped Yasmin become one of the most sought after poets around. Learn how to generate better ideas, find the right words to express those ideas, and organise rhythms and rhymes into compelling verses.

These sessions are perfect for 13-19 year old budding singers, songwriters, rappers, poets and spoken word artists who’d like to explore ideas more freely and structure lyrics more effectively.
