Our writers are poets and wordsmiths made of all sorts - our storytellers. Their word paintings and musings are the relics set out and left behind to inform and inspire both present and future minds. Lyrically justified recognises diverse voices as occupying a valid space and the need to give these voices exposure, so they reach further – further justifying their persistence. We call them urban poets, some-sing, others rap, do the reggae thing, and/or chat, and we have the spoken word variety. Based in Bristol, London, South Yorkshire, Manchester, Hull and Leeds, they speak authentically of politics and society in general, with passion.
