About me

I’m Jo: a writer, poet, editor and lover of words based on the South Coast of the UK.


I’ve been writing and reading for as long as I have been able to, and decided to set up Jo Fisher Writes – my second blog! – as an outlet for my creativity in September 2016.

This is a place where I can share my own creative writing and my heartfelt thoughts on life’s big (and little) issues, as well as book, film and theatre reviews.

I have performed my poetry at local open-mic poetry nights, and I will be competing at the Hammer & Tongue Solent Poetry Slam National Finals in 2019 after coming first in the H&T Solent Regional Finals.

I’ve also started my own poetry series, Honest Haikus, which you can find here on my blog and on my Instagram profile.

I write theatre reviews on BroadwayWorld.com, spreading my love of theatre further than this here blog! You can see all of my reviews on the site on my BWW profile page.

In 2018 I appeared on BBC Solent, discussing my poetry and reading my work live on air. You can also hear me discussing all that inspires me on the Art & Stuff Podcast.

I like to keep myself very busy; life is for living, and everything is a story.

I primarily write for myself, but I hope that someone else might be interested in what I have to say.

Welcome my blog. I hope you like what you find here.
