THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2007 Joanne studied for a Diploma in Careers Guidance at Nottingham Trent University in the late 1990s, a breakthrough year in which she wrote her first collection, Femenismo, shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. She has just published her second collection, Paraphernalia - a book about clutter - physical, mental and cultural. Her poetry is witty and sharp, described by Dannie Abse as coming from ‘a humorous diamond of a mind’. Bloodaxe Books is Britain's premiere poetry publisher, and has teamed up with Nottingham City Literature Development to bring four top contemporary poets to Lakeside.
