SOUNDBITES – Monthly Poetry Open Mic Event – on Zoom.

The guest poet this month is JOE WILLIAMS an award-winning writer and performing poet from Leeds. His latest book is the pamphlet ‘This is Virus’, a sequence of erasure poems made from Boris Johnson’s letter to the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.

His verse novella ‘An Otley Run’, published in 2018, was shortlisted in the Best Novella category at the 2019 Saboteur Awards. His poems and short stories have been included in numerous anthologies, and in magazines online and in print.

Despite all of that, he is probably most widely read thanks to his contributions to Viz.
