In 2018, the Women on Stage campaign took off, hoping to be the space that could bring together women, 30 years and older, who had a passion for writing poetry. Through the campaign, we met many poets and had the opportunity to come together to listen, create, laugh and share our art and our lives. The Women on Stage: Digital Poetry Chapbook is the first unfolding of the layers of poetry that these poets carry. Navigating through one’s own careers, marriage and motherhood– all of the women we met kept poetry alive in their lives–be it through sharing it in their Facebook walls or keeping it hidden in their diaries. This small digital collection is a preview of some of the poems that will be part of a larger anthology of poems that we are putting together with support from the British Council’s Creating Heroines project.
Women on Stage was supported through the British Council’s Creating Heroines Project in 2019-2020. Creating Heroines is a collaborative international project initiated by the British Council.Bringing together female artists, graphic novelists and illustrators, the project explores the themes of overlooked heroines from the past and imagines heroines for the future.
