Yesterday, we were visited by Steven Camden, aka Polar Bear. Steven is a renowned spoken word artist, author, playwright and screenwriter who has successfully performed at festivals all over the world and has been featured extensively on BBC radio. He has written two novels for young adults and his third will be released in January.


It was fantastic to hear about his creative process and learn how he goes from staring at a blank sheet of paper to creating a finished piece of work, whether it be a novel or spoken word performance.

He spent time working specifically with the Editorial team workshopping and performing – as Hallmark writers, we focus on relationships and real emotions every day, themes which are also integral to Polar Bear’s work.

Find out more about him in this article and watch one of the spoken word pieces he performed for us here.
