Blind Poetics – 11th March, 8pm @ The Blind Poet, Edinburgh

Posted on February 26, 2013 in News & Reviews, Scotland


Blind Poetics is a monthly spoken word night organised by some very dedicated, Edinburgh-based, super cool, poet-shaped volunteers. Members of the SYP Scotland committee will be going along, and would love to see you there.

This month’s feature act is Kristiana Rae Colon. Kristiana is, among many other things, a poet, playwright, actor, hip-hop artist, and educator. She’s been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam and her short collection of poems ‘Promised Instruments’ was released by Northwestern University Press on January 31.

Plus, the increasingly in demand and hugely popular open mic. Book a 5 minute slot by emailing Blind Poetics at

And, find out how you can contribute to the second edition of ‘Collection’, the Blind Poetics pamphlet.

This event is FREE and is hosted by Alec Beattie and Roddy Shippin.
