  • Ruskin Students Win Grantham Heat Stages of SlamJam

    Published 18/05/17

    The Priory Ruskin Academy hosted the Grantham heats of the Rotary’s 2017 SlamJam competition on Tuesday 16th May. SlamJam is a performance based writing competition for secondary school students. Choosing to write a poem, a story or a dramatic monologue, students consider the effect they want to have on an audience, and craft their writing accordingly. There are few rules…performances must last no more than 3 minutes; and no costumes or props are allowed. It is all about the quality of the writing, and of the performance. The process is ultimately competitive, but the journey is about the enjoyment of creative writing, and sharing it with an audience.
