Kilburn's favourite spoken word night returns after a great July launch with a literary line-up beyond compere (see what we did there...):

Featured writers are:

Dockers MC aka Laura Dockrill is everywhere you look. From The Guardian to Company magazine, from Latitude to the Edinburgh Fringe, this girl's hot property and it isn't hard to see why, with her perfectly-pitched delivery and genius observational patter making her a must-see spoken word artiste. Author of Mistakes in the Background and Ugly Shy Girl, both published by Harper Collins.

Welsh-born Nathan Penlington has gained a reputation as an original and inventive performer across the UK by skilfully shattering the myths that surround poets and poetry. Seamlessly fusing comedy, storytelling, and award winning magic with writing that is intelligent, accessible and entertaining he creates a unique form of literary cabaret.

Guest stars:

Ash Sarkar may be young, but she sure ain't short of a cutting put-down in her own lyrically-accomplished poetical stylee...a new voice at Latitude Festival 2009, Ash isn't just 'one to watch', she's one that's compellingly impossible to miss!

Chrissy Williams treads a blurry line betwen onomatopaeia and picturesque tableau. Her poetry is refreshingly varied and often draws unexpected parallels.

A former bookseller and editor, Stuart Evers is now a writer and reviewer. He lives in London.

Tom Sears' prose often verges on the fantastical whilst maintaining a very grounded sense of irony. He works at the zoo.
