Currently developing his own sitcoms including 'Curtains', Mark was recently chosen by London 2012 and BT to be one of the official story tellers for the Olympics and is the celebrated writer of may sketch, Fringe and development shows.

Poet Mel Jones and authors Eric Karl Anderson, Qasim Riza Shaheen and Suzie Feay complete the line-up.

Paul Burston's celebrated Polari salon provides a platform for new and emerging LGBT literary talent and showcases the very best in queer writing.
