The best and brightest wordsmiths around take to the stage for Born Lippy at Cobalt Studios on Wednesday 12th September. Fresh from taking over a stage at Lindisfane Festival, the leading night for all things wordy is back to its home turf with the line-up made possible thanks to leading spoken word organisation Apples and Snakes.

This month welcomes poet and spoken word educator Sara Hirsch, a former UK slam champion no less. She will also be running a poetry writing workshop on the same day at 4-6pm at Cobalt Studios with more info here. Headlining is rapper TrueMendous, whose sharp wordplay has set her up as one to watch. Political satirist Rahul Kohli brings his punchy comedy, Sam Summers brings some emotional, hard-hitting rap and Godfather of North East poetry Jeff Price rounds it all out.

Born Lippy is at Cobalt Studios, Newcastle on Wednesday 12th September.
