1pm – 2pm Nowt But Verse with Joe Williams:
Joe Williams is a renowned Leeds based poet and performer who hails from Hexham where he hosts the fledgling Words on the Wall open mic. His publications include Killing the Piano (2017), the intriguingly subtitled and experiential An Otley Run (2018) and the disturbingly prescient and spooky ‘erasure’ sequence This is Virus. This event will start at 1pm with around 40 minutes of conversation between the poets followed by 10 mins of questions from the audience Book via eventbrite: Booking closes at 11am and you will be emailed a link to the event by 11.30am.
