My co-host of Sonnet Youth and I Kevin P Gilday were absolutely delighted to be asked by ABC to host the Saul Williams pre-party yesterday. We had a range of talent take to the stage from open micers to spoken word heavyweights such as Katie Ailes and Kevin Mclean (Loud Poets), Jenny Lindsay (Rally and Broad), Stephen Watt and the mesmerising Chrissy Barnacle. Saul even dropped by and witnessed for himself the wonderful range of talent Glasgow’s poetry scene has. We were lucky enough to see him in action later, and it was a unique and electrifying experience, reminding me how far people can push themselves lyrically and performatively. Just wow!
