May's guest Geneviève L. Walsh is a Yorkshire-raised Londoner who began performing her work in March 2012. She founded Halifax's Spoken Weird after a year on the open mic circuit, a night that came into creation thanks to the death of Margaret Thatcher and a typo. In 2013 she became a core member of nationally acclaimed poetry organisation A Firm of Poets. Her debut solo collection The Dance of a Thousand Losers was published this year by Flapjack Press.
