Ryan At Words Per Minute!

I’m super pleased to be brining my book, Tomorrow, We Will Live Here, to Glasgow for the first time! And I’m double thrilled to be on such a lovely bill with old friends and new. It should be a wonderful evening and will be your chance to grab a copy of my new book. Hope to see you there, Glasgow friends. x

Words Per Minute

Spoken word, live music, film and performance on a Sunday afternoon.

Words Per Minute was set up in early 2010 by writer/performers Anneliese Mackintosh and Kirstin Innes, and after a very successful six months at Creation Studios and a high-profile collaboration with the Fence Collective, it’s coming to the Arches.

Previous acts have included novelists Ewan Morrison, Sophie Cooke, Rodge Glass, Suhayl Saadi, Duncan McLean, Doug Johnstone and Alan Bissett, musicians Adam Stafford, Swimmer One, Zorras, Eilidh MacAskill and DMC contender Bigg Taj, and performance from Gary McNair, Martin O’Connor and Kieran Hurley. Every acts gets ten minutes to impress the audience, no matter how famous they are, and it’s all rounded off with a set from resident DJ Miaoux Miaoux.

Coming up this month:
Performance from Kieran Hurley
Dark, sexy new stories from Kirsty Logan
Anarchic NYC poetry from Ryan Van Winkle
A live electronica set from Miaoux Miaoux
Christmas karaoke
+ more to be confirmed
