PLU Open Mic featuring Jo Bell

September 26, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Jo Bell is a poet, writer and the Director of National Poetry Day. A former archaeologist, her work sometimes focuses on the line between past and present – but equally explores themes of sex, friendship and life as a boat-dweller. She works to narrow the divide between performance poets (who often perform brilliantly but write badly) and page poets (who often write brilliantly but perform badly), and to widen the audience for poetry of all kinds. She works alongside both performance poets (for instance, performing with A F Harrold and Elvis McGonagall) and more traditional poets (being published in Magma and Envoi).
She has produced live tours and designed innovative projects like the Bugged project (running from June 2010) to better use digital media. A native of Derbyshire, she works across the UK. She is also a budding playwright, having written a play for Chester Literature Festival. Jo is working on her next collection of poetry – her first was Navigation (2008).
