Write to speak
Write to Speak is a campaign run by the Word Warriors, a spoken word poetry group, to introduce performance poetry to young men and women from diverse communities in five urban centers in Nepal. As part of this campaign, the Word Warriors hope to build public platform that give voice to those who have been traditionally suppressed. With a special focus on young women and marginalized communities in Nepal, the campaign will give the youth an opportunity to speak out and be heard. Write to Speak is funded by the Center for Culture and Development, Denmark, managed by Quixote’s Cove, and implemented by the Word Warriors.
Who are the Word Warriors?
Word Warriors are Nepal’s first spoken word poetry group that was founded after the QC awards 2010: The Poetry Slam. Since then, the group has been doing many activities to promote Slam Poetry in Nepal. Whether it is Sarah Kay’s workshop in Kathmandu or the celebration of the World Poetry day, Word Warriors have made its presence felt in Kathmandu’s poetry scene.
