Words and weeds

Kat is a Bristol-based poet, storyteller, writer, performer, and multiple slam winner. They won the 2017 Bristol Storyfest Story Slam, were a regional finalist in the 2018 Hammer and Tongue slam and won both the 2019 Milk Poetry Superslam and the 2019 Lyra: Bristol Poetry Festival Slam…

Kat is a brilliant and charismatic performer. Her control of movement and voice gives her work a physicality combined with a subtlety unusual in spoken word. Her writing is sharp, lyrical, well-observed and economical.

Laureate's Choice poet, poet in residence at Lyra: Bristol Poetry Festival
We booked Kat for a spoken word show at a community event in Tamworth. She kept the audience enthralled and entertained. I'd recommend her for any event. An absolute professional and an excellent, honest and brilliant performer.

Kat Lyons Workshop Insta

A creative writing workshop presented as part of Lyra: Bristol Poetry Festival

Our bodies are often a site of conflict and discontent. This workshop will focus on nurturing positivity and reconnection. Participants will look at poetry that focuses on the body and bodily experiences, examine which techniques are used to bring those experiences to life on the page, and use writing exercises and discussion to explore their own experiences and relationship to their body.

This workshop is offered as part of the digital programme from Lyra: Bristol Poetry Festival 21 and is supported by a grant from Arts Council England.
