Who am I?

Hello! I’m Cat Hepburn, an award-winning script writer, spoken word artist and educator based in Glasgow.  I hold an MA with distinction in TV Fiction Writing from Glasgow Caledonian University, and an MA Hons in Theatre and Slavonic Studies from the University of Glasgow. My passions are working with marginalised voices, exploring feminist issues and using contemporary storytelling to empower, provoke and make people laugh. 

What do I do?

Poetry performances and commissions (both corporate and personal), scripts, workshops, spoken word events and voice over work.

What have I done?


I’ve been performing spoken word regularly for four years. My work has featured on the stage, radio and on television. You can find info about my poetry career and videos here.

I’m also the proud co-host and producer of Creative Scotland funded spoken word events organisation Sonnet Youth.


My writing experience includes short films, animations, stageplays, poetry collections and I am trained in scriptwriting for continuing TV dramas. I have story-written for BBC’s River City and Lime Pictures’ Hollyoaks. My debut poetry book #GIRLHOOD (Speculative Books) is available to buy now.


For ten years I have facilitated workshops for a wide range of youth and arts organisations and delivered lectures and tutorials for a number of universities. I deliver lectures up to MA level and facilitate workshops in creative writing, spoken word and screenwriting for a wide range of ages, abilities and backgrounds. Find more info on my teaching in the Workshops section of my website.
