#MeToo: A Movement in Poetry
2017 will be remembered as the year of #MeToo, the start of an historic movement where women have come together to support each other in breaking the silence around the normalisation of sexual harassment and assault.
This year, Fair Acre Press published a new poetry anthology featuring 80 of our finest female poets. The anthology, which rose up directly out of the collective rage from the #MeToo campaign, was conceived and edited by poet Deborah Alma.
Poets featured in this anthology include Jill Abram, Helen Mort, Pascale Petit, Jacqueline Saphra, Sabrina Mahfouz, Kim Moore, Katrina Naomi, Emma Simon, Abegail Morley, Bethany W Pope, Kaddy Benyon, and includes a forward by Jess Phillips MP.
We are delighted to showcase this anthology as part of our festival, and poems from the anthology will be read by poets and audience members. As part of this event we would like to invite 12 women (age 16+) to read a poem from the anthology. If you would like to take part in this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
All profits from the book will go to Women's Aid UK.
Please note: some of the event content may be distressing.
