Featured Writers:

DOCKERS MC - Dockers MC aka Laura Dockrill is everywhere you look. From The Guardian to Company magazine, from Latitude to the Edinburgh Fringe, this girl's hot property and it isn't hard to see why, with her perfectly-pitched delivery and genius observational patter making her a must-see spoken word artiste.
Author of: Mistakes in the Background and Ugly Shy Girl both published by HarperCollins.

"...Laura Dockrill could easily be mistaken for a pop star... [she] has thousands of MySpace fans, and is a regular performer at Glastonbury and Latitude"
- The Guardian

NATHAN PENLINGTON - Welsh born Nathan Penlington has gained a reputation as an original and inventive performer across the UK by skilfully shattering the myths that surround poets and poetry. Seamlessly fusing comedy, storytelling, and award winning magic with writing that is intelligent, accessible and entertaining he creates a unique form of literary cabaret.

'Nathan Penlington's fusion of wit, storytelling and visuals are garnering critics' plaudits and attention' - Time Out

'The best qualified performance poet in the country' - BBC Radio 3, The Verb

Guest Stars:

ASH SARKAR - she may be young but she sure ain't short of a cutting put down in her own lyrically-accomplished poetical stylee...a new voice at Latitude Festival 2009, Ash isn't just 'one to watch', she's one that's compellingly impossible to miss!

CHRISSY WILLIAMS - treading a blurry line betwen onomatopaeia and picturesque tableau, Chrissie William's poetry is refreshingly varied and often draws unexpected parallels.

STUART EVERS - A former bookseller and editor, Stuart Evers is now a writer and reviewer. He lives in London.

TOM SEARS - Dry and observant, Tom's prose often verges on the fantastical whilst maintaining a very grounded sense of irony. He works at the zoo.

Musical interlude provided by: John T. Angle and The Spirit Levels:
"Genuinely beguiling" - John T. Angle
