Featuring:

Laura Taylor:

"She takes the intensely personal and makes it universal. She takes the universal and makes it personal. She is riveting, inspiring, dead hard and incredibly soft at the same time. This

is one of the best books of poetry I have ever read." Attila the Stockbroker

"Laura Taylor is a one woman bundle of energy; gritty, mesmerising, a performance that grabs the attention of the audience to deliver a serious message with a typical Northern wit" by Dom Warwick, Rebellion Punk Festival

“local poet Laura Taylor transfixed the main stage crowd with an absolutely masterly performance. What a wordsmith; there was love, anger, and that passion thing in abundance here. Words that made you laugh, cry…and yes, get angry…Not in a negative kick the cat way, but in a Stand Up And Be Counted / Not In My Name kind of way. Inspiring stuff - Simply Splendid.” Taken from a review of the 3rd Wigan Diggers 2013 event here on Festivals For All

Janine Booth:

Marxist, trade unionist, socialist-feminist, author, poet, speaker, tutor, former RMT Executive member, supporter of Workers' Liberty, aspie, bi, Peterborough United fan!

Many of Janine's poems are, as she says, all about “venting her spleen on the poetic stage”. For this Workers' Liberty member, socialist-feminist, trade unionist, spoken-word performer, every day has to be a day for hating the Tories.

Brendan McPartlan:
Brendan McPartlan stopped writing poetry around 13 years ago because he felt it was more important to utilise his limited literary skill to craft beautiful and interesting things to say to his wife instead of strangers. However, his ego occasionally compels him to stand on stages, pretending he's doing poems. Expect plagiarism, goldfish and baked goods.

Compered by Matthew Hedley Stoppard, Otley’s own town poet:
