Milk Poetry selects the finest, freshest poets from the UK and beyond to produce the most nourishing and eclectic spoken word bonanza you could ever hope for, curated and hosted by Malaika Kegode (Outlier) – monthly Mondays at The Wardrobe Theatre
Kevin P. Gilday is an award-winning poet, writer and performer from Glasgow. He is the founder of poetry performance collective The Scribbler’s Union and was co-founder of much loved spoken word cabaret night Sonnet Youth. He is a National Theatre of Scotland Breakthrough Writer, a BBC Writersroom Scottish Voice and one of Scotland’s most celebrated contemporary poets.
Kevin has performed all over the world, from Hollywood to East Kilbride, including major festivals (BBC 6Music Festival, Glastonbury), Fringes (Edinburgh, Toronto, Vancouver) as well as large scale tours of the UK, Germany, Canada and the US.
He has published four books of poetry, with his most recent – Sad Songs for White Boys (Speculative Books) – bringing together nearly ten years of work. His new collection, Anxiety Music (Verve Press), is a darkly comedic dissection of mental health, late capitalist dread, existential angst, sexual liberation and marital breakdown.
