Simon Lee has been described as "A Seasoned Performer" with "concise pithy comment" and as ... "Endearingly Deadpan." He has been writing and performing poetry for about ten years now, appearing at poetry slams, pubs, open mics, and assorted other gigs. Solicitor by day and poet by night, he likes to think of himself as poet law-reate.
Poetic highlights, in no particular order, include a 10 minute slot at a friend of a friend's birthday party to about 20 people crammed into a living room, walking the streets of Birmingham in his pyjamas on National Poetry Day 2007, winning Cheltenham Science Festival Slam (Slam The Atom) in 2008 and putting together his first CD - Tales of The Half-Expected.
Dan Simpson is a spoken word poet and compère, poetry projects and event organiser, workshop facilitator and writer. His poetry deals with love and literature, science and stars, ex-girlfriends and Xboxes: all that good geeky stuff. His poetry has featured on London Underground, in Fuselit journal and Inc. Magazine, and he's performed at venues from the National Theatre and Camden Roundhouse to bars and comedy clubs, and at nights such as Literary Death Match and Bang Said the Gun. He compères The Word House in Bethnal Green and does pioneering work with crowdsourced poetry.
A stand-up poet of playfully convoluted narratives and precision rhyme, Nathan Filer has been on BBC 3, Radio 4 and Radio 7. His short film won the BBC Best New Filmmaker award in 2005. His first novel will be published next Spring and is described by publisher HarperCollins as 'Mark Haddon for grown-ups'. He performs at literary festivals across the UK.
