Finally, we will include a list of more than 1100 women currently making visual poetry. The anthology is edited by Amanda Earl.
I don’t have work in this one but was extremely lucky to have gotten an honorable mention in the Women Making Vispo list. Considering I only started with vispo in late 2020 ( it was lockdown in Ireland and was lucky that my toddler liked art so…I created visual poems while he painted. And many thanks to SJ Fowler and his course – I learned a lot.
Well done to Amanda Earl, this is a truly beautiful book, high quality, beautiful layout…..support the publisher, editor, and all the contributors. You can buy it from Timglaset
