Catherine Wilson entered the Scottish spoken word scene in September 2014 and has very much made her mark since then. Known as one of the Loud Poets, she is also reigning Glasgow student slam champion. She runs Soapbox, the University of Edinburgh's biweekly open mic, and as president of the university’s Literature Society she organised Scotland’s most regular poetry slam. Her work has twice featured at TEDx and has won the Vaclav Havel scholarship for poetry from the Anglo-American University in Prague. She recently gained attention online when her poem ‘Facts’ became BBC Radio Scotland's most viral online video in March 2016.
