Special guest this month is the multi-talented and absolutely fabulous Mark Niel.
He has lived in Milton Keynes for the past 25 years. Mark has always written poetry and in 2008 he went public for the first time. Audiences have warmed to his assured performances and deft ability to blend humour, pathos and provocative material. Mark runs the local Poetry Society “Stanza” covering Milton Keynes, Beds and Northants as well as the successful “Tongue in Chic” Poetry events ( ). He is also a regular and much loved performer at PUREandGOODandRIGHT.

Mark is the “Sports Poet Laureate” for BBC Three Counties Radio, broadcasting to Beds, Herts and Bucks. He writes and records a weekly poem based on the sports headlines.

In April Mark entered and won the Apples and Snakes / Hammer and Tongue Slam at the Camden Crawl which he is thrilled about. Other slams in which he was the winner include Hammer and Tongue Oxford and Poetry Kapow, Milton Keynes.
