Byron has performed on Channel 4’s Random Acts, Radio 4’s Bespoken Word and BBC 3’s The Verb, has written and presented documentaries including Hell Is Other People – a self help guide to social anxiety – and is an ambassador for mental health charity Rethink.

Geneviève L. Walsh
A Yorkshire-raised Londoner, Geneviève founded the Spoken Weird night in 2013, and this year she joined Manchester's Stirred Poetry and released her debut solo collection, The Dance of a Thousand Losers.

Dean Wilson
"Hull’s Fourth Best Poet".

Short sets:

Gevi Carver
Delighting audiences since 2011 with her straight-talking, gin-fuelled spoken word routine.

Stan Skinny
A veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe and this year's Off The Shelf Slam Champion, Stan is known for his unique brand of spoken word comedy.
