Toonspeak young writers Word of Mouth have been back in the Studio creating new material for their upcoming event Sonnet Youth² in Stereo next Monday.

The events are spoken word gigs in Stereo (city centre venue) where Toonspeak young writers group Word of Mouth perform alongside professional spoken word acts/ musicians curated by Sonnet Youth who are also our hosts for the evening.

Over the past couple of weeks they have been working with author Cathy Forde who has led this project for a number of years with assistance from Rosemount Lifelong Learning‘s Angela McCutcheon on their writing. And this week we are thrilled to announce they will be working with both spoken word artists from Sonnet Youth, Cat Hepburn and Kevin P. Gilday on performing their work.
