About the writers

Mark Grist went from being an English teacher to defeating a grime artist in a ‘student vs teacher’ rap battle that has attracted thousands of hits on YouTube. Since then he has been on the telly, toured across the country and been hailed as a “Poetry standout” (Financial Times), “YouTube sensation” (The Sun) to an “unlikely heart-throb” (Guardian).

Tim Clare is a uniquely original poet; author and musician described as “shrewd and funny” (The Scotsman). He is the creator of the world’s first Poetry Take-Away and the ambitious 101 Poems In A Day where he wrote and published online a 101 original new poems!
