Cath Drake, Kate Potts and Alison Winch read poems from their new and upcoming collections exploring gender, desire, and the natural world. Kate Pott’s new book Feral (Bloodaxe), a PBS recommendation, was described by Tristram Fane Saunders in The Telegraph, who picked it as a Poetry Book of the Month, as ‘musical, joyously weird and filled with moments of pure pleasure’. Alison Winch’s Darling, It’s Me is out in May with Penned in the Margins, described as a fierce and funny book about politics, power, sex and love!
Cath will read her new long poem published as a centrepiece in ‘Waymaking, an anthology of women’s adventure, writing and art’ .
