‘But there’s just not many women doing poetry...’ – some men have said.
Back in 2013, when London was in need, poet and feminist Carmina Masoliver founded a monthly event that catered for self-identifying women and non binary folks, bringing national poets in to headline, creating open mic opportunities for upcoming artists and creating e-zines for submissions to keep the Riot Grrrl-inspired poetry community surrounding She Grrrowls alive and well. She Grrrowls was an experiment, one that made intersectional feminism at the forefront of the poetry scene and started some integral conversations that led to a wider acknowledgement of issues surrounding gender and identity at other poetry events around the country.
We were sad to see it take a hiatus, but in that time were thrilled to work with Carmina on the first She Grrrowls anthology featuring work from ten incredible poets including Aisling Fahey, Bridget Minamore and Rachel Long.
