Sara Hirsch

Sara Hirsch is a London-grown poet with punch. She is a former UK Slam Champion, and was ranked third in the World Slam Championships in 2014 and now runs London’s only regular three-round slam. She has performed at Glastonbury, has toured extensively, both in the UK and internationally and has performed live on the BBC. Sara was recently crowned the winner of the European Poetry Slam in Madrid, has written poems for the Roald Dahl Museum and the Museum of London and is currently working on her third full length poetry collection. She writes poems about everything, exploring themes of place, memory, identity, love, loss, fear and balloon animals – through wit, warmth and wordplay. Poetry is Sara’s way of challenging the world around her and understanding her place within it and her performances are bold and accessible.
