Words Per Minute

Sun 6 Feb 2011 | 4-6pm | £4

Spoken word and performance event Words Per Minute has arrived at the Arches after a successful six month run at Creation Studios and a high profile collaboration with The Fence Collective.

Booker Prize-nominated novelist Sarah Hall, author of The Carhullan Army and The Electric Michaelangelo, and Alasdair Gray’s biographer Rodge Glass headline the February event, at which everyone gets ten minutes to impress the audience, no matter how famous they are, and everything is rounded off with a DJ set. Previous acts have included novelists Ewan Morrison and Sophie Cooke, and musicians Adam Stafford and Miaoux Miaoux.
