Jenny Lindsay; Walking the Line (Sunday 26th May, 12- 2pm)


Spoken word poetry is often lauded as the perfect art-form for direct, one-person, political address. It is spoken of as an urgent, increasingly important art-form that perfectly marries the personal and the political. But how to draw on personal experience to create work that is both entertaining and hard-hitting? How can a writer/ performer walk the line between the personal, the private and the universal, particularly when writing from lived experience?

Join spoken word poet and performer Jenny Lindsay, for a workshop that will share tips and exercises Jenny herself has used in creating her new solo show, This Script, which uses poetic memoir to ultimately strive for solidarity, empathy and a call to action. 

Jenny Lindsay is a poet, performer, programmer and co-founder of Flint and Pitch, a platform where emerging, Scottish spoken word, theatre, live literature and music acts perform alongside established artists. Her latest one-woman show The Script and Other Drafts explored sex, gender and feminism.
