This week, I’m welcoming back the lovely Joy France for some poetry and conversation. You may remember that Joy was one of the poets who performed on my Live Poetry Special (part of the station’s Live Music Day in July).
Joy is a poet who loves being part of the current vibrant Spoken Word scene. She also takes her words to unusual places and has fun challenging many of the misconceptions people have about poetry. Earlier this year, she performed her poetry at the Isle of Wight Music Festival and is still giddy with excitement. Most days you’ll find her on the 3rd floor at Afflecks (Palace) in the Northern Quarter where she has set up an unusual space in her role as Creative-in-Residence.
I talk to Joy about her residency, her writing and poetry in general, and of course her selections for Apocalypse Books.
