LCA 'Poetry Evening with Joe Williams'

LCA 'Poetry Evening with Joe Williams'


Joe Williams is a former musician who transformed into a starving poet in 2015, entirely by mistake. He lives in Leeds and appears regularly at events in Yorkshire and beyond. He has been published in numerous anthologies and in magazines online and in print. In 2017 he won the prestigious Open Mic Competition at Ilkley Literature Festival and had his debut poetry pamphlet, ‘Killing the Piano’, published by Half Moon Books.
This evening Joe will be including a selection from his book ‘Killing the Piano’, and will also be previewing his forthcoming book and stage show, ‘An Otley Run’, which is composed of a narrative series of poems based on the famous Otley Run pub crawl. As you probably know, the Otley Run is centred around Headingley, and its route passes just a stone’s throw away from HEART. All welcome to read in the second half of the evening.
All are welcome to read a poem or short prose piece or essay on the theme.
