Jo is a poet, writer and proofreader. She has read for The Nasiona and been the first Writer-in-Residence at the Maggie’s Centre in Nottingham. Jo’s work has been short and longlisted by the Bridport Prize and Mslexia, and in 2019 she was selected in the erbacce-prize to be one of their Featured Poets. Her work has been published by Left Lion, Fortunate Traveller and erbacce-press; in seven anthologies (2 of which she co-edited); and in a festival guide. Jo’s writing has been broadcast on BBC local radio and streamed as part of the Nottingham Poetry Festival.
Jo’s debut poetry pamphlet – How Not to Multitask – will be published by Wild Pressed Books in May 2021.
I’ll be talking to Jo about her poetry pamphlet, and her writing in general. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
