CHRONIC(LES)

“...reading these poems is the first time I have felt like myself again, and I’ll tell you why. Because pain and disability are powerfully complex things, it is so rare for them to be granted the space and understanding they deserve. Because I have spent months staring at the ceiling, thinking I can feel only pain, but seeing my experience reflected in these poems, I realise, with relief, that I give myself permission to understand that it is so much more than that...It feels, so often, that those who live only in the kingdom of the well cannot travel between worlds, cannot reach us, cannot cross the chasm of understanding. But there is a way to reach out across that divide, to make ourselves understood and seen and real, and that is through art, and through writing.”

Bleed Between The Lines

"Stephanie's poems are truly in a class of their own... clever, beautiful, moving and on occasion laugh out loud, Bleed Between the Lines is a real aid to Menstrual Cycle Awareness."
Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer
Co-founders of Red School and co-authors of Wild Power: discover the magic of the menstrual cycle and awaken the feminine path to power.

"Capturing the nuance of the layers of the physical, psychological and soul shifts that the cycle brings is tricky and Stephanie has managed the word-magic of making this available to everyone, whether they have a menstrual cycle or not."

Trigger Warning

"In this anthology, the voices of women come alive as they share their darkest moments with you. The weight they’ve carried with them is transferred through the text..It feels as if you’re alone with each woman writing the poem, sitting opposite them sipping a cup of tea, or a glass of wine as they tell you what happened.  As the name suggests, Trigger Warning is not a light read, however, it is essential reading. Stories to hold close and use as fuel for future progress"

Silver Hare Tales

"From the unearthing of heritage to sensuous evocations of the natural world, here are poems rich with the striking image, keenly interleaving absence and presence. In her debut collection, Lauren Thomas showcases emotional complexity, sonic facility, and a genuine gift for transporting the reader.  Silver Hare Tales introduces an exciting new poet."

This Skin I'm In

"Every piece [in this book] feels like a time capsule of emotion, locked in and left in its most raw state. What a talent it is, to tap into yourself throughout the years, when most of us bury our past incarnations. I can’t wait to share this collection with the survivors in my life, it’s a hand-squeeze of a book - it’s saying ‘hey, I’ve been there too'"

Faces of Womanhood

What started out as a collaboration on Instagram in celebration of International Women's Day 2021 soon went viral and, overwhelmed by the sheer volume of poems submitted, we selected the 50 that would become our first print anthology as a small indie publisher. 

"The interpretations by each poet of contemporary womanhood are as varied as they are fascinating.  Prepare to be moved, challenged and set free by the searing honesty of these female poets."
