poet. workshop leader.

Lyndsay Price is a Liverpool based spoken word artist with an interest in how art can be used as a tool to ignite social change.
Lyndsay writes mainly about: friendship, relationships, sexuality, fake news and 90’s movies. Brutally honest and almost aggressively vulnerable at times. Lyndsay’s work often takes on a philosophical nature, nearly always underpinned with an ounce of hope. She is inspired by the things that make us human, and spends her days attempting to name the feelings that often leave us speechless.
Lyndsay has been actively contributing to the poetry community in Liverpool and further afield for the last seven years. Her career trajectory has since polished her into a well-rounded facilitator, performer, event organiser and host. Her night Rhymes & Records ran for two years at The Jacaranda and collaborated with both FACT Liverpool and Liverpool Pride. Her course Find Your Voice first ran for 10 weeks as an exploration in spoken word and poetry and has been continuously developed.
In 2020 Lyndsay was accepted onto the artist development programme Queer Bodies, a project ran with support from Homotopia festival. During this unique mentorship experience, she produced her first e.p “a process of shedding” a mini audio pamphlet, exploring the multifaceted nature of queerness and how each of those factors come into play during a national lockdown.
She has worked closely with Writing on The Wall over the years, bringing spoken word workshops to a wide variety of communities, performing as part of their annual festival, delivering on their Superhero’s of Slam project and being lead artist for Liverpool on I Know I Wish I Will, a nationwide schools project cumulating in a national poetry slam, endorsed by Stephen Fry.
