Joanne Limburg has published two collections of poetry with Bloodaxe Books: Feminismo, which was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection, and Paraphernalia, a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. She has written one collection for children, Bookside Down, which was shortlisted for the CLPE Poetry Prize and Highly Commended. Her latest poetry collection is the pamphlet The Autistic Alice, also published by Bloodaxe. Her non-poetry book The Woman Who Thought Too Much, a memoir about OCD, anxiety and poetry is published by Atlantic Books and her debut novel A Want of Kindness was published in July 2015. A second memoir, Small Pieces: A Book of Lamentations, appeared in July 2017.
Joanne will be talking about her most recent book Letters to My Weird Sisters: On Autism and Feminism. This heartfelt, deeply compassionate and wholly original work humanises women who have so often been dismissed for their differences, and will be celebrated by 'weird sisters' everywhere.
Joanne recently completed a PhD in Creative Writing at Kingston University. She lectures at De Montfort University in Leicester.
This event is part of the Writing Cultures series on the theme of Para-ability.
