Liz Lochhead, Scotland’s national poet, is a veteran Fringe performer whose performances always put a smile on the face. This year she is performing a lunchtime show at the newly reopened Assembly Rooms on George Street. Making Nothing Happen is a celebration of the word, with a mix of poems, monologues, characters, theatre pieces and guest artists.
To celebrate, Assembly Rooms Fringe are asking for your tributes to Liz’s work – in 120 characters. Write a poem based on a theme close to Liz’s heart –it could be Scotland, the relationship between past and present or anything else you like – and tweet it using the hashtag #poemforliz to be in with a chance to win tickets to see the show. Entries will be judged by the experts at the Scottish Poetry Library and the Assembly Room favourites will be collected together and immortalised on the AR Fringe website.
Get your entries in by 3pm on Thursday August 9 and you could win tickets to see the Friday performance.
