Writers Jackie Kay and Nicola Barker



Poet and Scottish Makar Jackie Kay reads from her new poetry commissioned for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park's new exhibition 'Tread Softly'. In Nicola Barker's experimental new novel H(A)PPY (Faber) she is attempting to obliterate the narrative. 'Ode to Leeds' is the second play by young writer Zodwa Nyoni. Based on her experiences as part of Leeds Young Authors, 'Ode to Leeds' is at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from the 10th June. Performance artist Scottee's work often examines gender, body image and masculinity. In a new commission for The Verb 'Felt Tips', he writes about the relationship he had with his mother as a small boy.
