Push the Boat Out

Since 2022, I have been the Executive Producer of the gorgeously eclectic Push the Boat Out: Edinburgh’s International Poetry Festival. This new festival, founded by Jenny Niven, is a place where a venn diagram of artforms come together, cross pollinate and collide in a polyphonic explosion of poetry, spoken word, live music, hip hop, songwriting, film, sound, gaming, visual art and concrete poetry.

Push the Boat Out will be back in Summerhall from 24th to 26th November 2023 for another fantastic festival. In the meantime get your poetry fix from our open mic, Rock the Boat, held on the first Thursday of the month in Summerhall's Gallery Bar.

"By turns funny, moving and unsettling, resolutely lively and fresh, it […] demonstrated what is strongest in Push The Boat Out’s contemporary approach to poetry."
