#MeToo: A Women’s Poetry Anthology

Thursday 8 March, 18:15 - 18:45
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Conference Room

The Scottish launch of the #MeToo anthology

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This event is free. It is, of course, limited to the capacity of the venue, and if you’d like to reserve a ticket to be sure of getting in, you can now do so by contacting our box office on  However, the tickets will only be available for collection on the day and they will not be issued until 40 minutes before the event starts. They cannot be received online or by post. Reservations will expire on any tickets not collected 15 minutes before the event starts. Or, of course, you can take your chances on just turning up on the day.

To mark International Women's Day, we're thrilled to host the Scottish launch of a brand new collection which emerged out of the collective rage of the #MeToo campaign around the world at the end of 2017. The result of these voices singing together is one of sisterhood, strength, and recovery. The launch will be marked by readings from anthology poets Maggie Mackay, Georgi Gill, Helen Ivory, and Victoria Bennett.

The poets will also be selling the anthology at our Poetry Market on Saturday 10 March. All profits from sales will go to Women's Aid UK.

Please be aware that the content of this reading is of an adult nature which some may find distressing.
