Raised Voices: a poetry celebration of International Women’s Day

Gloucestershire Poetry Society marked International Women’s Day with an afternoon of poetry written and performed by local women poets, including Somewhere Else member Iris Anne Lewis. Held in the welcoming surroundings of St Mary de Crypt in Gloucester, the audience was treated to poetry that explored women’s lives in all their variety and expressed wit, anger, passion, humour, love and what it is to be a woman.

Ably hosted by Josephine Lay, the Chair of the Gloucestershire Poetry Society, the event raised £150 for the Nelson Trust, and organisation that supports disadvantaged women in Gloucestershire.
