Scotland’s Largest Poetry Slam


Whilst at university, Wilson was the president of the University of Edinburgh’s Literature Society. During this time she ran their poetry slam which quickly grew to the largest poetry slam in Scotland, averaging an audience number of 150-200 attendees.

These slams became a hotbed for Scottish poets to perform and sent a large number of winners to the Scottish Slam Championships (which Wilson was invited to time-keep and help promote online). Many poets, comedians and musicians cut their teeth as both hosts and performers at these slams.
