Spoken Truth: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Cat Hepburn...



For the latest SWH! podcast Ali caught up with poet, spoken word artist, and scriptwriter Cat Heburn to talk about her latest published collection Dating & Other Hobbies.


Cat is someone we've wanted on the podcast for a while, and it's fascinating to hear about the new poetry, her first published short stories, the way she approaches different forms of writing, using the personal to examine more universal themes, how things have changed since her previous publication #GIRLHOOD, and so much more.


Cat also talks about Sonnet Youth, the spoken word events she hosts with previous podcast guest Kevin P. Gilday, and how they have adapted to and prospered during COVID, as well as her work as a scriptwriter for TV.


You can find out more about Cat and her work at cathepburn.co.uk. Follow her on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


Dating & Other Hobbies is out on the 29th April published by Burning Eye Books.


Details for the launch event are here - Dating & Other Hobbies Book Launch.
