Edinburgh’s International Poetry Festival

Push the Boat Out is a brand new poetry festival located in Edinburgh. We will showcase fresh, provocative, radical, audacious, and inspiring poetry and spoken word, bringing people together to enjoy, experience and interrogate it. By any means necessary.

Poetry will never stand still. There are challenging times ahead. Get in the boat, compañeros.

It's our Birthday! 🎂🥳🎉

This dear man's—my early encourager's—centenary falls on October 17th 2021. One of 20th century Scotland's most remarkable writers, this special issue commemorates & celebrates his life & legacy & includes rarely seen photos, artwork & other textual matter. It's in press now. ❤️
