Lunch and spoken word from the pick of the Scottish scene

Spice up your lunch (included in the price of the ticket) with two of the loudest poets around. Katie Ailes holds the current StAnza slam title and placed second in the 2015 Scottish National Poetry Slam. She is poetry editor for the literary magazine Quotidian and her first collection, Homing, was published in August. She performs alongside another slam veteran, Kevin Mclean. Kevin is the current Glasgow slam champion and captained Team Edinburgh at the 2015 Intercity Slam. He released his first collection and CD, Learning to Write, in 2015. Both poets perform with the collective Loud Poets.
