'The biggest spoken word night in London for women' (Evening Standard) returns to the Edinburgh Fringe for three incendiary shows. After being shortlisted for Best Regular Spoken Word Night (Saboteur Awards 2017), a sell-out run at last year's Fringe and shows at the Royal Albert Hall, That’s What She Said returns with an incredible revolving line-up of slam, storytelling, poetry and performance from the most exciting women writers around.

Coming for the first time to the Scottish Poetry Library, That’s What She Said returns to Edinburgh Fringe on Thursday 16th, Friday 17th and Saturday 18th August, with a daily changing programme featuring both emerging and iconic women writers.
