About the Dead [Women] Poets Society

Resurrecting Dead [Women] Poets since 2015

Here at the Dead [Women] Poets Society, we aim to facilitate an ongoing conversation between living and dead women and non binary poets. How do we do this? Well, through the mediums of readings, writing, zine-making (that's DIY publishing), interviews, performances.... and anything else you might be able to think of! We're an open collective who love to collaborate. If you have a project you think we could be involved in, or would like to host us for one of our regular events, do send us a message.

Want to see more of what we do? #jointheseance and come to one of our events across the UK, where our special guest poets will be resurrecting their poetry heroines for a live audience.

In the mean time, why not check out our blog for some inspiring content by living women poets, on the Dead [Women] Poets and their legacies. Or take a look at these reviews of our events in online magazines.

Last but not least, be sure to check out our archive of living women poets we've featured in past events, beautiful illustrated by our artist Lily Arnold. Just visit her website to see more of her incredible work.

Enjoy exploring our site, and we hope to see you at an event soon!
