No Rhyme, No Reason presents...OUT:SPOKEN
No Rhyme No Reason is proud to present OUT:SPOKEN - a night of queer spoken word, fundraising for LGBT Youth Scotland. The night aims to increase the visibility of LGBT+ artists, to celebrate and strengthen the queer artistic community, and to bring you some of the finest voices on the scene:
Sophia Walker, fresh from her US tour and storming performances at the
Capturing Fire international queer slam:
Rachel Amey, a writer/performer of poetry, spoken word and humour. Her work includes performances at The Traverse Theatre, Scottish Story Telling Centre, Stand Comedy Club, The Arches, Glasgay and Glasgow Merchant City Festival – as well as appearances at LATES@Flatplanet
and Jackson’s Lane in London. Her poetry has been published in various journals and anthologies and she hopes to tour her solo show “Where have I come from? Where are we going?” later this year in association with Confab.
“Wickedly observant, …….a vortex of radical energy” Joyce Macmillan,
The Scotsman ****
Janette Ayachi, who has a MSc in Creative Writing from Edinburgh Unversity and has been widely published in literary journals, including last years New Writing Scotland anthology. This year she was
shortlisted for Write Queer London, and has two collections coming out, A Choir of Ghosts and Pauses at Zebra Crossings.
Kate Joester, who used to get her poems put up on the walls loads at primary school, but then she got distracted. A couple of kids, a buttload of school, and a whole load of LGBT activism later, she's
making a comeback. We'll see how that goes.
