Jenny Lindsay
Director/ Programmer, promoter, compere.

Jenny Lindsay has been writing, performing, programming and promoting spoken word in various ways since 2002. As both a performer and writer as well as a programmer, Jenny has been widely credited with championing spoken word artists in Scotland over the last 15 years, providing many acts with their first experience of professional platforms, popularising the art-form through a dedication to booking excellent acts in new spaces (first with The Big Word {alongside Anita Govan & Jem Rolls} 2002 – 2008), Is This Poetry? (2010), and alongside Rachel McCrum with Rally & Broad (2012 – 2016), “providing a beacon of brilliance on the live lit scene.” (The List). Though spoken word is Jenny’s primary passion, she has a keen eye on the emerging music scene in Scotland and enjoys bringing multiple art-forms together under one roof in any event she programmes.
