Mithago Craze is a Member of the Sword Forge Collective 2022 – 2023.
UK Slam Champion 2023, pertinent and powerful, Mithago Craze has all the hallmarks of a spoken word poet. Her voice is melodic, her timing impeccable: consistently leaving audiences with goosebumps and dropped jaws. A master of holding your attention, she is both still and animated, all at once. This all culminates into a poet perfectly poised to impress at slams: she’s represented Sussex at UniSlam two years in a row, and placed runner-up in the annual regional final of Hammer & Tongue.
Her spoken word is both emotional and grounded in the facts, moulding contemporary social and personal questions together with classical, biblical, and literary references. Mithago Craze is truly a force of nature: get your ticket-buying fingers at the ready if you see her on a lineup – she is one not to be missed.
