This is the London launch for Culture Matters’ new anthology of contemporary women’s poetry.
Co-editor Fran Lock will host a series of readings from contributors, including both emerging and established writers. Featuring performances from Amy Acre, Golnoosh Nourpanah, Joelle Taylor, Lisa Kelly, Kathy Pimlott and many more tbc. The work focuses on themes which reflect the texture and preoccupations of working women in contemporary Britain.
There are 65 contributors of all ages, working across a variety poetic and artistic traditions. The anthology contains poems, lyric essays and artwork which explore women’s complex relationship to work, to the environment, to our families, to our bodies, and to each other.
The anthology strives to be an inclusive expression of sisterhood, offering an inspiring, intersectional vision of feminism that is porous, egalitarian, and mutually responsible.
A chance for people to hear some passionate poetry and buy a signed copy of the book.
Contributors to the anthology are:
Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, translated by Abigail Parry and Serafina Vick
Artworks inside by Jane Burn, Fran Lock, Natalie Sirett, Mary Lou Springstead
The event is free, but donations are welcome.
