14 Hour: poets on show, May 17th 2008, London

14 Hour: Teachers en Regalia
featuring Roddy Lumsden, Tim Wells, Niall O'Sullivan and Stephanie Baker.

Because Niall, Tim and Roddy are often mistaken for brothers and have been dubbed The Three Bears, they will be trying out the occasional taster of each other's work at this event - see if you can tell the difference.

Roddy Lumsden: Roddy Lumsden is former Vice Chairman of the Poetry Society of Great Britain and has carried out several residency projects, including being poet-in-residence to the music industry and in a five-star hotel and golf resort. He works as a puzzle and quiz writer for BBC MindGames magazine. He was recently commissioned to write for a fashion shoot involving Kate Moss, who reads the poem here:

Tim Wells: The editor of Rising magazine (described by John Cooper Clarke as "the reader's wives of poetry mags") who in his time has performed at the likes of Latitude and Cargo.

Niall O'Sullivan: Niall is the host of long running poetry event Poetry Unplugged. His books You're Not Singing Any More and Ventriloquism for Monkeys are available from Flipped Eye Publishing.

Stephanie Baker: Stephanie has previously performed at Touch Me I'm Sick, Bingo Masters Breakout and Causing a Scene, and will be reading a clutch of new poems designed to invoke demons.

Providing an unsettling psych soundtrack throughout will be guest DJ Rhys "Spider" Webb, of The Horrors.

Guest compere is Southend bohemian and host of now sadly defunct poetry night Vocal Schism: Theo Rowswell.
