Free Luke Wright Workshop (Aug 20)


Inky Fingers present a unique opportunity…a workshop with leading performance poet LUKE WRIGHT in Edinburgh this August! The workshop is FREE but it’s first come, first served, and places are limited to 20. To book a place, please email, marking your email ‘Luke Wright’.Poet Luke Wright leads a fun and challenging workshop with examples from Betjeman to George Formby via Bob Dylan and John Cooper Clarke. Participants will learn about metre, rhyme and humour while creating poems of their own. There will be time at the end for a mini performance

This is a rare chance to work with one of the UK’s top leading performance poets. Come!

You only need to bring pen, paper and yourselves.

‘Luke Wright is the best young performance poet around’ (THE OBSERVER). His work is ‘visceral, poignant and riotously funny’ (THE SCOTSMAN). He is the creator of seven live poetry shows, which have toured the world, picking up four and five star reviews. His debut collection, MONDEO MAN, was described in a five star review by THE HUFFINGTON POST as ‘a riot of cheek, giggles, boobs, tears and Facebook.’ He hosts and co-curates the Spoken Word programme at Latitude.
