The Emma Press Anthology of Motherhood is a beautiful collection of poems about motherhood. Thirty-two poets from around the world consider motherhood from a variety of perspectives, writing sensitively as and about children and mothers, expectant mothers, and women contemplating motherhood. The collection as a whole celebrates mothers as well as (or, possibly, by) acknowledging the strain and complexity of feelings associated with the state of motherhood.
My poem, ‘Lipstick’ is being included in the anthology.
Book launch: Thursday 27th February at The Tea House, Vauxhall, 7pm where there will be readings from myself and the other contributing writers.
