Jo Bell is on the radio tomorrow, twice!

Posted on October 07, 2015 by Emily Tate | 0 comments

This will not be news to a lot of people reading this but tomorrow is National Poetry Day!

We love Radio 6 in the Inpress office so we are particularly excited that Nine Arches Press poet Jo Bell will be on the Radcliffe  and Maconie show tomorrow chatting about all things poetry. We also hope she will share a poem or two from her latest collection, Kith

Tune in at 3pm so you don’t miss it! ...Or before 3pm, it’s a jolly good show and John Cooper Clarke will be there too! You could even hang around with RadMac for Teatime Themetime!

The excitement doesn’t stop there either. Jo will be appearing on Radio 4 tomorrow evening from 8.15pm as part of their live discussion about poetry from the mid-twentieth century to the present day. Andrew Marr will be hosting the show with guests, Simon Armitage, Juliet Gardiner, Kate Tempest, Kei Miller and Glyn Maxwell.

Jo Bell’s latest collection, Kith, is one of our favourites from this year and to celebrate National Poetry Day you can get 25% off this along with our other top poetry titles from 2015 with the code NPD2015.
