Welcome to www.deadpoetry.co.uk, a website dedicated to the poetry and lyrics of Mark Grist and MC Mixy, Peterborough based writers and performers known together as ‘Dead Poets.’

Since forming in 2008, Mark and Mixy have been challenging the preconceptions of poetry and hiphop across the country. As ‘Dead Poets,’ they have performed in venues ranging from nightclubs to secondary schools; from festivals to formal dinners. They appeared on Radio 6 Live with Steve Merchant and have recently been on a National tour with Phrased and Confused.

‘Dead Poets’ now have an extended show with the help of Arts Council funding. The new show is gearing up for another tour, and they are currently taking bookings for hiphop and/or poetry gigs.

If you have a glance at our 'shows' tab, you'll see we're getting things fixed up.
