Who Writes This Crap?

Do you ever wonder who's responsible for the rubbish that you read every day? In Who Writes This Crap? Stickley and Wright take the most ridiculous examples of junk mail, packaging, small print and advertising and rewrite them in side-splitting new ways. Whether it’s a smoothie label, a newspaper headline or an unsolicited email from a Nigerian prince, this fun and irreverent satire will change the way you read forever.

Joel Stickley is the Poet Laureate for Lincolnshire and the author of the hit blog How To Write Badly Well. His work has been published by Penguin, Hamish Hamilton and Pan Macmillan, as well as appearing on BBC One, BBC Radio 4 and Channel 4. With long-time collaborator Luke Wright, he co-wrote the animated film Crash! Bang! Wallow! which won the NFBC Short Film Award at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
