It was really exhilarating to read at the Poetry is Dead Coven launch. Might’ve been partially from the rush of trying to get to the venue in time from the ferry with a car full of pals + camping gear. In any case, we made it!
After I introduced through my bio (yes, I am a triple scorpio) and I read my poetry, I’m not sure if the audience reacted more to my work or to the number of placements I have in scorpio. I didn’t even mention my mars…!
In any case, the other poets I got to catch reading were wonderful and hilarious. This issue is totally my jam – packed full of queer witchiness, astrology, and healing remedies. I feel really honoured to be published alongside these amazing poets.
Thank you to guest editors Leah Horlick and Adele Barclay and to everyone else at Poetry is Dead.
