    In Eddie's poetry, you will find a blend of heartfelt poems and mind-bending wordplay. He writes about experiences of black love, joy, and struggle in a way that is both thought-provoking and emotional. His aim is to shift the perspectives of the heart and the possibilities of the future. 

    Eddie Lartey is a Hamiltonian wordsmith, poet, and spoken word artist who uses his gifts to address love, devastation, and triumph within the Black experience. Using words to create a better life for all, Lartey is dedicated to the poetics of world-making and world-breaking. Through his collective, Hamilton You Poets, Lartey also conducts writing and performance workshops for a community of all ages and stages. His work has been performed on national and international stages for almost a decade. His accolades include winning the Toronto International Poet Slam in 2019, winning the Human Rights Festival Poetry Slam in 2021, winning the Top 40 Under 40 award in 2022, winning Canadian Individual Poetry in 2022, and winning the Copa "Americas" de Poetry Slam in Brazil this past December. It is with great gratitude that Eddie will compete for the title of World champion later this year.
