Hosted by Reece Williams, OMS will also welcome two special guests, including One Mic Stand veteran and recent International Slam-O-Vision 2020 joint champion (Manchester tied with fellow UNESCO City of Literature Quebec in the final) Jardel Rodrigues. Jardel is described as “a fast-paced urban wonder who reels of poems like rap and is a self-confessed Grimeaholic”, serving up a taste of poetic flair mixed with musical daring and drawing on themes of growing up, crime, love and loss in pieces such as Sonnet 1 and Sewer Side Love.
