Event description

Description

Poetry & Bystanding: What makes us act? What is the trigger that moves us to speak, to write? And are those actions enough? Is doing nothing also doing something? Join poets Sophie Mayer (author of, among other titles, The Private Parts of Girls and O) and Jay Bernard (whose poetry collections include Your Sign is Cuckoo, Girl and The Red & Yellow Nothing) and Kat Peddie (who wrote Spaces for Sappho) who will read from their powerful, feminist work.

A discussion about the role of poetry in activism will be a chaired by poet and art critic Cherry Smyth (author of Queer Notions and Test, Orange, among other titles).

Age: 15+ years
