More of this! There is a need to focus on the positive, that is, the words of the women poets. This is at the heart of : celebration, honouring their art, & raising awareness of their canonical absence. Thanks for sharing

I’m back at my Norah Hoult stuff, rereading her first book. It was published in 1928. Such audacious writing for its time. ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦

A great event by coming up following the model. Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi, Sophie Meehan, Maïa Nunes and Anna Walsh perform alongside a sampling of poetry from a marginalised poet who has been influential to them.
