Robbie Hudson - http://kilburnsocialclub.blogspot.com/ - author of new novel The Kilburn Social Club...anyone that brings Kilburn to the fore is (within reason) always welcome at wordPLAY, though few could celebrate our own little piece of, er...heaven...with the stylistic accomplishment, charisma and imagination as Mr RH. Also remember to ask about the sought-after KSC football strip as favoured by Messrs Mitchell and Webb...

Guest Stars:

Molly Naylor - http://www.myspace.com/mollynaylorpoet - this lady's got tonnes of talent and, most importantly, shovels of sounds and an amazing aptitude for witty repartee and an astute understanding of rhythm and how to work it.

Tim Wells - http://www.myspace.com/12caesars - Tim Wells has cultivated a laugh that’s more like a caress. He walks properly. He does not slouch, shuffle or stumble about. He knows that wide, floating trousers are only good for wearing on a veranda with a cocktail in your hand. His latest collection, Rougher Yet, was published by Donut Press in May 2009.

Jen Campbell - http://jen-campbell.blogspot.com/ - winner of the Penguin Orange Readers' Group Prize 2009, Jen is a writer of prose and poetry who is a prolific blogger who values variation and difference within her written work.

Jack Stannard - http://www.myspace.com/stannarddoeswords - gracing wordPLAY with his infuriatingly young (and immensely talented) presence after a stint at this year's Latitude festival, Jack spits lyrics from his bitingly wry and cleverly structured poetry.

Musical interlude: Jude Cowan - http://www.myspace.com/judecowan - experimental prog-folk weird wonderfulness...this time for your undivided attention as the interval will be AFTERWARDS rather than during...ch-ch-ch-chaaaanges...

Host: Becca has retired to the countryside for a month to eke out a modest living weaving tapestries on an ancient loom so your special guest host will be: NANCY CLARIK - capable hands if ever there were.
