Panel: Feminism in Poetry - What it’s like being a woman who can speak

This panel brings together three female poets, from a cross section of the discipline (performance poet, page poet and experimental poet) to discuss their experiences as creators. What have been their greatest challenges, how have they fought back against the misogyny they’ve experienced in the poetry world, what changes would they like to see and how are they helping other more inexperienced female poets move through what can often still feel like a male dominated industry?

Hosted by: Anna Forsyth

Featuring: Hani AbdileGabrielle Journey Jones and Sarah Anne Connor

Tickets: $10 / $7 Concession
