Jaybird … alchemizing writers, readers and audiences

Jaybird brings writers, performers, readers and audiences together to make literature sing.

Established in 2006 by poet and literature promoter Julia Bird, the company works with writers, publishers, festivals, promoters and educators to devise and manage projects to develop, entertain and edify bookish audiences.

What Are They Whispering? is the third Jaybird-produced touring poetry show. Previous shows were Tilting the Mirror (with Jean Sprackland, Greta Stoddart and the work of Ray Robinson, 2007-8) and You Are Here (with Colette Bryce, Daljit Nagra and Jo Shapcott, 2010).

Regular Jaybird collaborators are director Phoebe Stout and lighting designer John Castle. What Are They Whispering? is generously supported by Arts Council England.
