Nottingham’s global poetry and music community
Welcome to World Jam
World Jammers are from a very diverse group of people including asylum seekers, refugees, immigrants, students and local English performers. The group has so far accommodated speakers of more than 17 languages and has celebrated the UK’s diversity of languages and cultures through participating in many poetry and music festivals within Nottingham and the East Midlands.
We do writing workshops, produce poetry anthologies, and provide our members with live performance opportunities and translation of their poetry and lyrics.
World Jam is free to join and participate in, but we also accept donations if you can afford it, and if you feel we deserve it!

The Book Launch!
Tune in to watch our poets performing live from Us Versus Virus.
Us Versus Virus is a collection of 40 poems and illustrations from 27 poets and artists, an anthology of poetry that explores the human experience of the Coronavirus pandemic from different perspectives.
Composed of observations, questions and stories of heartache and resilience, the poems offer words of kindness, hope and love.
Us Versus Virus acts as a map to help us navigate our emotions and responses to this extraordinary event.
