About Poetry in Commotion
'Poetry in Commotion' - is the brainchild of Basildon poet Olmo Lazarus, formerly one half of local spoken word duo The Tory Town Poets.
The poet - real name Jacques Bottjer - teaches youngsters through his Poetry to Succeed project and helps to organise the borough's annual Poetry Slam, which sees children from local schools compete in a spoken word poetry tournament.
He has described the 'Poetry in Commotion' event as, 'an opportunity for writers, poets and performers to share their work, discuss ideas and develop their art'.
Liz Grant, from the Foundation for Essex Arts - which has helped to launch the scheme - has plans that sessions will be held roughly every four weeks, here at the public-owned Towngate Theatre.
