Launch party for Amy Acre's debut poetry collection, Mothersong. With readings from Amy Acre, Fran Lock, Jess Murrain and Cai Draper, including tributes to our dear friend, Gboyega Odubanjo.
Forthcoming from Bloomsbury on 28th September, Mothersong is a lyrical excavation of trauma and healing in the midst of early motherhood - the debut work of an endlessly inventive poet whose work 'fizzes with energy, physicality, and the levitating openness of song' (Rebecca Tamás)
‘Amy Acre’s poems are electric. They crackle and spark with wild feeling, inventiveness and deep sensuality. They set the page aglow and make my heart spin.’ Liz Berry
'Amy Acre is one of the best poets of her generation. Pure cinema, raw heart, and unparalleled technique.' Joelle Taylor
'Poignant, powerful and provocative.’ Salena Godden
