Jo Roach, a lifelong Londoner, started taking poetry classes in 1994 and has been particularly encouraged by Mimi Khalvati and other tutors at the Poetry School.  Jo was a founder member of All mouth no trousers, a literary cabaret;  co-organised Poetry and Jazz at the Poetry Café with Hylda Sims; and has organised Poetry Street as part of the Stoke Newington Festival for three years running.  Her poems have appeared in many magazines and anthologies (including Oxford Poets, 2007,  OUP and Carcanet, eds Bernard O'Donoghue and David Constantine) and her pamphlet, Dancing at the Crossroads, was published by Hearing Eye.
