Caitlin Mckenna (they/she) is a queer, communist, vegan poet from Leeds. In the last year, Caitlin has been working as a writer across the North and performing at spoken word events and festivals, alongside getting pieces published in various journals. In 2021 they were included in a CLMP reading list and nominated for a Pushcart Prize and the Griffin Poetry Prize. Their debut chapbook Now Say It Back was released by Bent Key Publishing in 2022. Cofounding literary affinity group Bone Down, Caitlin is dedicated to creating accessible, experimental artistic spaces. Her poetry showcases a profoundly confessional style and an unapologetically confrontational voice.
Since beginning my journey as a spoken word artist I've performed at some iconic venues, alongside some incredible performers. Some of my most notable booked performances have included:
I've also had the wonderful opportunty to headline Wordspace, Speakeasy, and On the Mic.
