The Scottish launch of the #MeToo anthology

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.
