Rosie Garland

Rosie Garland is a UK-based novelist, poet, performer and singer with post-punk band The March Violets. Her award-winning short stories, poems and essays have been widely anthologised, and her latest poetry collection, As In Judy, is out now with Flapjack Press. She is the author of  The Night Brother; Vixen, a Green Carnation Prize nominee; and her debut novel, The Palace of Curiosities, won Book of the Year in the Co-op Respect Awards 2013. She is currently developing a new musical project, Time-Travelling Suffragettes.

Lew Kelly is a writer from Rossendale, England. He is the editor of the Lifejacket Anthology— a collection of short fiction, poetry, and art, raising money and awareness for displaced people—and his poetry is published in several publications. When not writing poetry, Lew is working on a novel or working as a researcher.

Genevieve L WalshGeneviève  L. Walsh is a Yorkshire-raised Londoner and writer of poetry that “shines an unforgiving light on contemporary life and manners, doing so with words which are full of sometimes shocking honesty” (WF Live). She has been compère and coordinator of her night Spoken Weird since 2013, and a member of nationally acclaimed spoken word organisation A Firm Of Poets since the same year, with whom she still performs, runs workshops and co-hosts their Saboteur-nominated night, Unity Words. In June 2017, after co-creating and co-hosting their Invisible Disabilities Slam, she became a member of Mancunian feminist poetry collective Stirred Poetry. Her début solo collection, The Dance of a Thousand Losers (Flapjack Press, March 2017), covers the first five years of her performance career, and it has been described by Henry Normal as “keen and urgent with an untamed beauty – like a puma caught under a streetlight.”
