Joanne Limburg


I’m a poet, writer and sometime creative writing tutor. I’ve published three books of poetry for adults, one for children, and a memoir about my experiences of OCD and anxiety, called ‘The Woman Who Thought Too Much’. As a philosophy graduate, I’ve also had plenty of boring jobs on the way, but was able to read many interesting books while commuting. From 2008 to 2010 I was the Royal Literary Fund Fellow at the local University, where my job was to help students with their writing skills. I’m also happy to help people with their writing.
