Unticketed event, poets who want to read must register.

Prepare to be moved!

Come along to Rock the Boat, Summerhall’s longstanding monthly poetry open mic, put on by Push the Boat Out: Edinburgh’s International Poetry festival.

15-25 poets read every night, and an emerging poet features to close out each evening. Though we are an anglophone open mic, poets often perform multilingually, and we particularly encourage poets to share work in Gaelic and Scots.

Sign up to read or just drop by to listen – there’s something new every month.

Please note: as this is an open mic performances are not vetted, performers are not required to provide content warnings and may use mature themes and language.
