#BadLanguage50: Jo Bell

Jo Bell

This is gonna be a special one. It’s our 50th regular Bad Language event, and we’re delighted to welcome back to our stage JO BELL.

Jo is an outspoken, well-spoken poetry pundit. She is the UK Canal Laureate for the Poetry Society and the Canals & Rivers Trust. Her 52 Project won Best One-Off Event at the 2015 Saboteur Awards.  Her new collection Kith is out now.

“Witty, sexy and deft, Jo Bell’s verse has an easy charm that hides a sometimes painful honesty… Kith is a wonderful collection.” Stuart Maconie

“Jo Bell is one of the most exciting poets now writing and no time is wasted in the company of her work.” Carol Ann Duffy
