OTR Catherine Wilson open mic SEPT

Inky Fingers continues it’s journey On The Road to The White Horse on the Canongate from 7.30pm on Tuesday 6 September with Loud Poet Catherine Wilson.

Catherine Wilson entered the Scottish spoken word scene in September 2014 and since then she has become the current Glasgow student slam champion. Outside of Loud Poets she  also runs Soapbox: the University of Edinburgh’s biweekly open mic in the heart of Edinburgh and spent a year running the most regular poetry slam in Scotland as president of the University of Edinburgh’s Literature Society. In 2015 her work won the Vaclav Havel scholarship for poetry from the Anglo American University in Prague and has since been featured twice on the TEDx stage. Her poem “Facts” became BBC Radio Scotland’s most viral online video in March 2016. In April she helped lead and organise the first non-American international team to CUPSI in Austin, Texas after she was part of the winning team at the national competition UniSlam. However her greatest achievement is still winning a rubber duck during the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe.
