Jasmine Chatfield is a writer and poet who recently graduated from Lancaster University with a BA in English Literature. Her poems have been published or are forthcoming in The Cadaverine and Neon, and she has performed her work widely across the North West as well as various other places. Her work is often concerned with nature, creation myths, outsiders, apocalypses and reflections.

Lenni Sanders

Lenni Sanders is a poet based in the North West and also a recent graduate of Lancaster University. She has been published in Ink, Sweat and Tears, The Cadaverine, The Crocodile and Poetry Digest, and performs in Manchester and Lancashire. She likes to write imagery-heavy poems about strange minds, animals, places, hurting, and sex.


Together, they are an unstoppable force! They have written experimental collaborative sets, organised open mics and curated spoken word events, utilising the multi-voiced quality of collaborative performance to explore oppositions and relationships. Inspired by Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, they will perform a collaborate set that asks questions about dystopia, apocalypse, and women’s experiences.”
