Live Poetry Lab

See our resident poets create poems and watch their writing unfold here as they weave in your contributions. Live Poetry Lab takes place daily at 11am to 2pm from 21 to 25 August in The Greenhouse on George Street.

Our poets' task is to create responses to your memories of the festivals in Edinburgh since they began 70 years ago. Contribute by writing down your memories and handing them in at the event or tweet them using #LivePoetryLab.

You can drop into Live Poetry Lab to see the poets at work (no need for a ticket, it’s free).

Our resident poets are: Colin Herd (21 August), Jane McKie (22 August), Jennifer Williams (23 August), Peter Mackay (24 August) and Ryan Van Winkle (25 August).
