Back by popular demand, Mike Scott is one of the most popular and influential musicians on the local acoustic and folk scene. Mike’s work is rooted in the protest tradition of folk. Sometimes the songs are overtly political, but more often they are themes of more personal protest and reflection but they are always delivered with a whimsical humour and a sideways glance at a host of subjects from wealth to growing old. Check out his work at www.myspace.com/bristolsmikescott

David C Johnson is a prize-winning performance poet and Radio 4 playwright. His witty, observational poetry has entertained audiences at literary and poetry festivals in the UK and North America. He was Appledore Book Festival’s Garrick poet 2010 and Bristol Bike Festival 2010’s Poet in Residence. His latest collection is “Holding on and Looking Out” (Paralalia April 2010).

Claire Williamson has published two narrative poetry collections: Ride On (PoTA Press, 2005) and The Soulwater Pool (Poetry Can, 2008) and is currently working on a novel, The Scarab Bookshop.

  6. I manage the Discovery Centre at City Academy, which delcuins the library We would like to start a group for young writers and wanted to ask if anyone from Word of Mouth would like to come and help out as a volunteer? I would supervise the group and nobody would be left alone with children! If anyone you know is looking at getting into teaching this would help them, it would also help them get workshops with schools in future. If the group is popular then we might be able to pay someone in future.Thanks,Helen
