Jude Simpson’s poems

Audio Diary

Which came first for Jude – the passion to communicate and entertain or the undeniable gift with words? She describes the two coming together and finding line by line, gig by gig that she's compelled to do what she's doing. The Guardian describes her as "hilarious" and the Scotsman said "She's got words on a string like so many yoyos, and her lines sparkle with wit and panache." She is no less brilliant in her creations for rejesus but why not find out for yourself.

 Jude’s audio diary

The audio diary.
This is the first time that Jude has explored her faith and ideas about Jesus through writing and poetry and the journey through is fascinating to listen to. Threads of ideas come and themes are followed. Some become poems whilst others get booted to the touchline . . . for now.

Listen to diary one.
Fish, Max Clifford and ebay, the ideas are coming, but the task of making them funny is more of a challenge. Jude interviews some friends on their views and has an embarrassing technological moment on a train.

Listen to diary two.
Jesus has broken his metatarsal but Jude isn’t similarly handicapped. Now in the thick of idea development she finds much in today’s culture that help her express what she believes about Jesus. Oh, and she read a bit of the bible too.

NB: all sound recordings were made by Jude (somewhere near a road) with a dictaphone provided by rejesus.
