She recently produced the True Grit Digital Poetry Cycle for the Yorkshire Festival and BBC Radio 4 has just commissioned two half hour shows featuring her work to be broadcast in 2015.

Fox’s appearance caps a great run by P, P & P which has seen them publish a new anthology of Yorkshire writers, many of whom have appeared at the Tap n Spile. Published in physical form and available on Amazon, it has been very well received.

The event begins at 7.30pm. As always, it will include an open mic spot where any writer of poetry or prose will be welcome to share their work. Entry is £1.
