Louise Fazackerly is a professional poet and theatre maker based in the north of England. She has appeared on BBC1 television and BBC radio 3 and 4 as well as BBC Lancashire and BBC Manchester. She has blogged for The Guardian and appeared in the Daily Mirror. She has been described as ‘a great performer’ by Will Self and ‘a class act...we love her and so will you’ John Cooper Clarke.
 
Martin Domleo has been short-listed in four international poetry competitions, including two poems in the 2018 Bridport Prize. His poem Sunderland Point won the Dickens Two-Hundred Writing Prize in 2012. He has had six books published - three collections of poetry, two novellas and a novel. His latest novella The Rest Is Silence has been translated into Chinese and published in China. His illustrated narrative poem The Desk, which he self-published in 2006, remains among his favourite works. A founder member of Damson Poets, he enjoys a wide spectrum of interests, including painting in oils.
