Dead [Women] Poets Society

Dead [Women] Poets Society resurrects neglected women poets of the past. ​


We work with brilliant living women and non-binary writers up and down the UK, to commune with women poets of the past. Book a ticket to a séance, read poems inspired by Dead Women Poetslisten in to ghoulish audio and get involved. If you have a project you think we could be involved in, or would like to host us for one of our regular events, send us a message.
