In the age of Facebook and digital communication, a remarkable group of British teenagers have chosen to define themselves through one of the most ancient and potent, forms of expression out there – the spoken poem. WE ARE POETS presents a moving and poignant story of youth, art and freedom of expression, as it intimately follows six young poets from youth literary group, Leeds Young Authors.
