Pennine Poets

Joyce Thornton

Joyce died in 2010 but is remembered with respect by members of the Pennine Poets. For many years she acted as secretary of the group. She was a widely published poet, classically trained pianist and an artist whose creativity over several decades spanned all three areas. A noted exponent of concrete and three dimensional poetry with her late husband, Joyce herself organised poetry workshops and musical concerts, and worked tirelessly to inspire and promote the region's artistic talent. Poems by Joyce and information about her work can be found in the Pennine Poets anthologies, especially Mind and Body and Spirit and Emotion.
