When you think of Dubliner poets, you might think of some dead guy you studied in school. Welcome to the new era of poetry, with spoken word artists performing in a way that’ll change how you see poetry forever. In an exploration of the poetry community in Ireland’s capital, Jessica Spencer aims to perform her first slam poem and become one of the new poets of Dublin.
The New Poets of Dublin was created as my final year project during my studies in DIT. I received a 1.1 for the project which was recorded and edited in ProTools.
The documentary won ‘Radio Production (Arts & Features)’ and was a finalist for ‘Radio Documentary’ at the Smedias 2019.
