Jess has performed at Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival and the Edinburgh Fringe and in 2014 her poem, Dear Mr Gove received viral attention on Youtube and has now reached more than 300,000 hits. The poem was taken from her debut poetry and music show, Burning Books which she performs with her band Jess Green and the Mischief Thieves. Burning Books received a host of 5* reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 and was toured nationally at the end of last year. Her first collection of the same name was published by Burning Eye Books in September 2015 and was featured at the Poetry Library in the Southbank Centre alongside Hollie Mcnish’s Cherry Pie. She has written for Channel 4 and the BBC and her work has received acclaim from artists such as Josie Long and Scroobius Pip.
