Okay, it’s been a few days, but Jilly at Poetry Hut asked about the lack of exposure for women poets. Personally, I think the bigger question is: Are we, women artists and readers supporting each other? Who are we reading? Whose collections do we own and are we going to readings featuring women?
So what do you do? If asked, could you easily rattle off ten women poets you regularly read or list their collections you own? If you can, please share.
It’s a no-brainer for me. I run a women’s lit group, operate a community library that is predominately filled with books by and about women. My home library is the same.
What about you?
