Working with Communities

In November 2012, with the support of Creative Scotland and The Robertson Trust, Inky Fingers appointed a part time Project Manager to develop and support spoken word in Mid and East Lothian.


Since this time, Project Manager Rachel McCrum has worked with groups in Craigmillar, Tyne & Esk and Portobello to deliver workshop programmes and events, as well as working with partners such as Edinburgh International Book Festival to deliver free masterclasses with high profile performance poet Luke Wright.


If you belong to a local writing group and would be interested in becoming part of our Inky Fingers Communities Programme, please contact Rachel at

Spoken word. We love it.
