Inua Ellams

Category: Artist

With a style influenced by both classical literature and hip hop, Inua crosses 18th century romanticism with traditional storytelling and contemporary diction, loose rhythm and rhyme. Inua mixes the old with the new.

Over the two days of Greenwich Fair Inua will be running short interactive poetry workshops as well as writing an original composition to be performed on Sunday. On both days, Inua will be asking participants to meet him for a quick, tiny interactive haiku poetry workshop on Twitter – A Twaiku poetry workshop. To take part, participants should have a twitter account and should come ready to use it. Inua and the participants will write together and share the poems on twitter with the hash-tag #gdifhaiku added to the Twaiku. Inua is willing to read participants poems back to them and all the poems from the day will be available online should anyone search #gdifhaiku on Twitter.
