Stand Up and Spit is back – this time with events around the country. This national series will take Ranting back to the communities where it developed, including Liverpool. We have partnered with Writing on the Wall Festival to bring Stand Up and Spit to Liverpool’s WOW audience.
Tim Wells last performed at WoW at an hilarious event with Phil Jupitus in 2014. At that time, he had already begun to document the Ranting Poetry Scene and collecting the stories of his fellow Ranters which became the Stand Up and Spit blog (standupandspit.wordpress.com). Salena Godden is also a WoWfest favourite. In 2015 she supported Lemn Sissay and had the audience rolling in the aisles with her Voodoo poem.
