Iona Lee

Iona Lee is a writer, performer and artist originally from Edinburgh. Raised among actors and storytellers, she has always loved stories and the many ways they can be told. She is also fond of the conviviality pubs can afford and discovered as a seventeen-year-old that she could use performance poetry as a means of getting into pubs without her age being challenged. Now twenty, the drinking and poetry have both continued. Iona won the title of Scottish Slam Champion in 2016. An illustration student at the Glasgow School of Art, she often illustrates her own work.
