Poetry x Class Reading Group: Experimental feminist working class texts with Rachael Allen

22 February @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A close reading of experimental, feminist working class texts, by women. The set texts to be discussed during the session are:

  • Ann Quin, The Unmapped Country, Stories and Fragments (And Other Stories), 2018
  • Glenda George, A Child In The Playground, 2013
  • Fran Lock, Muses and Bruises (Culture Matters), 2017

Toward the end of the session there will be a poetry workshop: if you wish to workshop your poetry, please bring copies of your poem (no more than one page). If you do not wish to workshop your poetry you are welcome to stay and discuss others’ work.

Reading groups are free to attend. Spaces are limited, and allocated on a first-come first-serve basis. The form will remain open even after capacity is reached – if a space becomes open, it will be offered to the next person down on the form.

Email poetryxclass@gmail.com if you have difficulty accessing the set texts, or if you have any other questions.
