Bringing urban poetry to the masses

TALENTED: Contributors to Lyrically Unjustified

LYRICALLY JUSTIFIED (volume 2) is an urban poetry anthology supporting emerging talent, with contributors from diverse cultural and artistic backgrounds. The book aims to amplify the unique and generational voices of writers rooted in communities across the UK, with a range of writers who are also rappers, singers and spoken word artists.

Exploring a wide range of social, political and domestic issues through written words, readers will gain a deeper understanding of what is being conveyed.

Based on volume 1, the project will provide a new opportunity for under-exposed new voices to be published.

Compiled by Shaun Clarke, free from offensive language, this is an anthology born of struggle and perseverance, from authors who know the highs and lows of our society, inspired by conviction and the ability to see beyond surrender. From inequalities and immigration to identity, heritage and hope, this book is current, of present hearts and minds, and promises to be thought provoking for the masses.

Speaking on the first volume of Lyrically Unjustified, Khadijah Ibrahiim said:“They Champion causes, not for domination but for resolution… Urban Artists, they search for truth in light of wisdom and creativity.”

While all 25 plus poets so far are UK based, this is poetry from a variety of perspectives and they herald from Bristol, Hull, Leeds, London and Manchester, with Miles Chambers, Nattylyn Jeffers, Splitz P, Charmain Ugq Lawrence, Lawrence Hoo, Muneera Williams, Sukina Owen Douglas, Young Rhodsie, EmfyahSiS Mc, and more.

In order to support the publication of this book, a crowdfund campaign has been created, and they are currently £3,350 away from their target.
