Colin Hambrook: goes on another absurd fools’ errand for that elusive vein of gold at the end of time

Clare Glynn Chitan: whose heart soars as a creative being asking herself, could I be a poet, a writer. Writing makes her walk tall, be proud to own her work and call it work .

Wendy Young: who cut her teeth at Survivors Poetry; performed in many festivals, events, London wide and beyond. Describes her work as ‘Misery with Oomph’. Her writing and performance poetry are as nectar that feeds her body and soul.
