The Bell Jar: Jo Bell's blog

"She lives the poetry she cannot write" – Wilde

Poems, downloads, books


‘Jo Bell is one of the most exciting poets now writing and no time is wasted in the company of her work.’ – Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate

It’s awfully nice of her to say so. But judge for yourself. Buy my latest collection Kith for only a fiver – or have a go at writing yourself with my best-selling book 52: Write a Poem a Week (the clue is in the title). If you really want to push the boat out, buy both for £15 and give one of them to your mum.

Or hover over ‘Poems, downloads, books’ in the menu to the left, to see various things that might interest you without spending any cash. I hope you enjoy them.

    Hi Jo, I’ve just found the site Waterlines which includes your poems as Canal Laureate. I live close to the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and love your writing. Can I buy the poems in a book format somewhere? Thanks, Laura

      One or two are in my book ‘Kith,’ available from Nine Arches Press. As for the others – nope, I’m afraid they are only on the website, as commissions for the Poetry Society and CRT. But glad you liked them and thanks for taking the time to say so!
