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.

We love Summerhall!

Everything about our venue - pillars to stairways to orange duct tape to rainbow archways to bins and all - was exciting at our most recent meeting. We're so excited for their arrows to be pointing you toward our poets. So, so excited.
