Point Blank Poets, 2017 PuSh Festival

Breaking down the barriers between rap, poetry and the dramatic monologue, spoken word is one of the key literary and musical forms of today’s world. Here are five of its best practitioners, hailing from the U.K. Point Blank Poets (Dean Atta, Sabrina Mahfouz, Bridget Minamore, Deanna Rodger and Chimene Suleyman) speak with passion and precision, their words touching on the political, the personal and every point in between.

… it’s impossible not to mention the sense of musicality that imbues [the] poetry. Poetry doesn’t flow any faster than this.

—The Stockholm Review of Literature
