Fake tan and body builders, flat caps and old factories, #BBCLocalPoets challenges the outdated clichés and celebrates all that is regionally distinctive about the North.

Ian McMillan introduces a group of spoken word poets whose work pays homage to the culture, customs and unexpected delights of living in the North of England.  Each poet has teamed up with their BBC Local Radio station to create a brand new commission inspired by listeners who love their local area. 

The BBC Local Poets are Jean Atkin, Alice Gretton, Theresa Lola, Molly Naylor,Nairobi Thompson, Timi Amusan, Warda Yassin, Jamie Thrasivolou, KimweiMcCarthy, Harry Gallagher, Jodie Langford, Jane Routh and Liv Torc.
