This is The Significance of a Dress. We have one more poem to post… in the hope of enticing you to buy this lovely, hair-raising collection!
Today is World Poetry Day!
buy a poetry book, we have lots!
In all seriousness, we are racing to get all our poetry converted into ebooks so that self isolators (and those still putting themselves at risk in essential jobs for that matter) can get at them with ease. We didn’t do this before because we are perfectionists and we dont like what it does to the formatting – and we are reducing the price of all our ebooks to 99p for the duration. Someone else is setting that up for us so not sure if they are all sorted yet…
If you want to sample the wares, there are lots of videos and audio files dotted about the website, especially in the blog, and we are TODAY doing a virtual launch on our Facebook Page. join us from 2pm to about 3.30, for a mix of short stories and poems.

This is Casting a Daughter Adrift, which is actually in Time and Tide.
We will be doing a VIRTUAL launch on 21st March from 2pm, with live readings from Neil Lawrence, Elizabeth Parker, Elizabeth Hopkinson, Claire Booker, Ness Owen, and CB Droege, and pre-recorded segments from Emily Bullock and Laura Potts via our Facebook page, as we think it wise not to encourage people to congregate, but still want to celebrate our lovely book! We hope to just delay our event at Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, but we’ll see how it goes!

Until I get round to editing the video files, here are some photos from Sunday’s event, where we launched Emma Lee‘s new collection, The Significance of a Dress, and thoroughly celebrated International Women’s Day with poems and flash from Laila Sumpton, Claire Booker, Sarah Lawson, Jenny Mitchell, Julie Easley, Cherry Potts, Michelle Penn, Shamini Sriskandarajah, and Emma Lee!
To celebrate the launch of Emma Lee‘s new poetry collection The Significance of a Dress, we are holding an event at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, University of Greenwich, 10 Stockwell Street, Greenwich SE10 9BD on the actual day SUNDAY 8TH MARCH 2pm.
Emma will be joined by Jenny Mitchell (Time and Tide, whose idea it was). Michelle Penn (Dusk, Noon, Time and Tide), Shamini Sriskandarajah (Story Cities), Claire Booker (Time and Tide), Laila Sumpton (Dusk, Noon) and Sarah Lawson (The Other Side of Sleep, Vindication, Departures), and there will be an open mic session, and very possibly cake.
The notional theme is women on the move, but this is being widely interpreted.
If you would like to take part in the open mic with on-theme poetry or flash fiction, please contact us, or sign up on arrival, there are a maximum of 6 500-word-limit slots.
Tickets by donation to cover travel expenses for the readers.
