Joe’s latest book is The Taking Part, a short collection of poems on the theme of sport and games, published by Maytree Press.

His pamphlet This is Virus, a sequence of erasure poems made from Boris Johnson’s letter to the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic, was released in 2020 and received a special mention in the Best Poetry Pamphlet category of the 2021 Saboteur Awards.

His debut poetry pamphlet, Killing the Piano, was published by Half Moon Books in September 2017, followed in November 2018 by the verse novella An Otley Run, which was shortlisted for Best Novella in the 2019 Saboteur Awards.
