Poetry reading event 18 May 2018

We are delighted to announce the launch of  debut poetry collection ‘Cutting the Green Ribbon’ by our colleague Katy Wareham Morris, on Friday 18 May 2018  6pm at the Studio, The Hive, Worcester. Everyone is welcome to this free event!CTGR WORCS LAUNCH POSTERReviews of the collection:

‘In Cutting the Green Ribbon, real-life contemporary experience is interspersed with the imagined voices of famous women, creating a multi-facetted and powerful collage of what it is to be woman. I’m reminded of the feminist slogan ‘The personal is political’, as vivid and startling imagery both strips bare and re-dresses notions of ‘femininity’. Even the language is alive, tantalising and tricky. Words and form interact playfully, and provocatively, in poems that are in turn tender and sharp, thought-provoking and paradoxical. This collection is hard, hungry, passionate.’ S.A. Leavesley (V Press)
‘Prepare yourself for this fast, furious, eminently female,visceral, sexy, brash, brave, experimental, roller-coaster of a poetry collection. I know of nothing else like it. This poet has found her own dark courageous, bold-as-brass voice. Brava!’ Deborah Alma (The Emergency Poet)
