Steven Camden (Polarbear) at Hay Festival 2014 by Ben and Ru

Steven Camden talked about how rhyme helped him throughout his life and his first-ever performance, a spoken word contest at the literature festival, Slam, where he learnt he could make a living out of spoken word poetry.

The event involved the audience writing short rhymes and saying them out loud. Steven also made up short stories and recited spoken word poetry.

We thought it was good fun for both adults and children, and we highly recommend getting his book. We really liked the way he included the audience and made everyone feel comfortable when reading out their rhymes.

The way he told his poems was just amazing, he acted along as he told his stories. The speed at which he recited the spoken word poems was phenomenal and his rhymes were witty.
