Tall lighthouse presents one of the most exciting emerging talents in performance supported by two up and coming Cambridge poets....

Adam O'Riordan was born in Manchester. He read English at Oxford University and studied poetry under Michael Donaghy. Later, he won a scholarship to study under Andrew Motion at the University of London where he was awarded the inaugural Peters Fraser and Dunlop poetry prize. His first pamphlet 'queen of the cotton cities' was released to wide acclaim earlier this year.

A native of Mississippi, Benjamin Morris is a PhD student at Cambridge. In 2005 he earned a master's in poetry from the University of Edinburgh; his work has appeared in such publications as Seam, Chapman, Poetry
Southeast, The Independent on Sunday, and the Mays Anthology, and earned such honours as a Pushcart nomination and a Commendation in the National
Poetry Competition. In 2006 he won both the Brewer Hall Prize and the Chancellor's Medal for Poetry at Cambridge.

Neil Singh is a student doctor who has read his poetry alongside major writers including Simon Armitage, Jacob Polley and Carol Ann Duffy. Some of his poems appear in The Mays Anthology 2007 and The National Poetry Anthology 2008. He is currently writing a collection of poetry on the theme of health and disease.

There will be a short open mic slot at the start of the event, come early to sign up.
