The Cultural Coven

Jan 19 2022 • 1 hr 13 mins

Joining Nicola Roy in The Cultural Coven this week is the award-winning poet, novelist, playwright, and former Scottish Makar, the brilliant Jackie Kay.

In this fun and expansive conversation, Jackie speaks about her poetry and creative process, her role as Scottish Makar, adoption, being politically active from a young age, and the racism she experienced growing up as a young black woman in Bishopbriggs. Plus many hilarious anecdotes and a fantastic creative challenge too!


The Cultural Coven is a fortnightly podcast series that explores the lives of some of Scotland's leading arts and cultural figures through conversation (and a bit of banter) with podcast host, actress, Nicola Roy.

Presented in association with the Stephen Dunn Theatre Fund and the Lyceum Theatre.
