Flapjack Press & Manchester Libraries
Our special guest for March is Joe Williams, founder and host of Chemistry in Leeds and Words on the Wall in Hexham. His latest book, The Taking Part [Maytree Press], is a short collection of poems on the theme of sport and games. His other work includes This is Virus, a sequence of erasure poems made from Boris Johnson’s letter to the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the verse novella An Otley Run, which was shortlisted in the 2019 Saboteur Awards. Despite all of that, he is probably most widely read thanks to his contributions to Viz.
