170 poems by 68 of the writers who have read their work at the POP UP POETRY events (later renamed the1000 MONKEYS events) at the Bar Des Arts Wine Bar in Guildford. You'll find rants and sonnets, haiku and prose poems, free verse, found poems, rhyming slam poems and love-songs, all co-existing amicably in these pages, just as they do on our platform. The line between "page poems" and "performance poems" is ignored here, and the mix includes poems by frequently published poets and writers, as well as rappers, "stand-up poets", ranters and song-writers, all of them in love with words. This book adds another dimension to the art of the spoken word, just as performance adds a different dimension to the written page.
