Dead [Women] Poets Society in Leeds
Time & Location
About the Event
Dead [Women] Poets Society is teaming up with Wharf Chambers to bring you an evening of resurrecting dead women poets in the beautiful city of Leeds. This time we'll be hosting two fabulous Leeds-based poets: Malika Booker and Lizzi Hawkins. Their chosen poets to resurrect will be announced here in the lead-up to the event, so watch this space....
It's still uncertain if we will be able to hold in person events by September, of course our fingers are crossed that we will, but for now we are organising this as an online event. So we're holding off putting our tickets back on sale until we have a clearer picture. So watch this space! In the meantime many of our other events are going vitural, go take a look.
The main event will be accompanied as ever by our popular Dead [Women] Poets Society Open-Mic, for which we welcome poets and performers of all and no genders to the stage! Our only rule: for every poem of your own, you should also read/perform one by a dead woman or non-binary poet.
We'll be doing our to share transcripts in advance, and of course let us know any other access requirements at email@example.com.
Come for the poetry, stay for the resurrection! #jointheseance
