Katherine McMahon

Katherine McMahon is a performance poet living and working in Edinburgh. She has performed across the UK – from music festivals, to the back rooms of bars, to one glorious night with a full orchestra and a specially-written score. Her first pamphlet, Treasure in the History of Things, was published by Stewed Rhubarb Press, and was accompanied by an album in collaboration with sound designer Fiona Keenan. She has run a wide range of workshops, projects, and weird and wonderful events. She is particularly interested in using spoken word to build a more just, kinder world through understanding, community and solidarity.
