PERFORMANCE poet Carly Brown, known for her lively and witty readings, is to lead a workshop in Inverness on Writing for Performance.

She will demonstrate the process of writing poems that come alive in performance, using examples from her work.

The Workshop, hosted by HighlandLIT, takes place in the Glen Mhor Hotel, Inverness on Tuesday May 17 at 6.30pm. It will also be live-streamed on Zoom. Everyone over 16 is welcome.

It is free to HighlandLIT members, and £5 for everyone else.

Originally from Austin, Texas, and now living in Edinburgh, Ms Brown is known for her spoken word poetry which, she says grapples “with ideas of home, growing up, feminism, and relationships.”

She has performed at Glastonbury Festival, StAnza Poetry Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe.

She is the author of a bestselling children’s picture book, I Love St Andrews, and a debut poetry pamphlet, Grown Up Poetry Needs to Leave Me Alone.
