Julie Clarke: Jay lives in Stamford, though she has lived most of her life in London and Liverpool.  She is a published poet, writing mainly for schools, although her poetry is also used by social workers and by those teaching adult literacy.

Woven throughout the professional career she had prior to writing, she held supply teaching roles at schools from the most challenging – teaching children with special needs and those that have been excluded due to malicious behaviour – to the most outstanding schools and she still works for a charity, visiting schools to give motivational career talks to students

Philip Dunkerley: Phil sees poetry as a way in which we express our humanity. He thinks most poets write about themselves, the people who surround them, or the world they live in — or some combination of all three. There are many poetries, but Phil thinks all should be understandable and - speak softly - even enjoyable.

 

Mike Alderson: Described by his daughter as "a feminist who hates Feminism". He looks into dark places, sits next to people on the bus, in the pub, stands in queues at supermarket checkouts and sees humanity in words, a few syllables away from prison.
