A warm welcome back to Grey Hen Press, whose beautiful anthologies showcase the wit and wisdom of older women poets. We’ll be dipping into their new landscape series, featuring publications on mountains, lakes, rivers and woods.  The perfect way to bring the Great Outdoors indoors!

At this event, we’ll hear readings from Joy Howard, A C Clarke, Helena Nelson, Marka Rifat, Fiona Ritchie Walker and Maggie Rabatski. We’re sure there will be something for everyone, even if you don’t consider yourself a poetry fan! These collections feature the work of well-known poets, poets who deserve to be more widely known, and poets for whom this may be a first publication. Be inspired by their words at this friendly Story Café.

Founded by Joy Howard in 2007, Grey Hen Press have published 20 anthologies, which showcase the particularity of women’s voices, and give less well-known poets the opportunity of having their work published alongside that of established writers.
