Poetry by Women


Tabula Rasa is a book of poetry by women to coincide with the start of a new year. After asking for submissions, the five editors chose a collection of exciting, exquisite, and original poems from writers of diverse backgrounds. Together they celebrate womanhood as well as calling out its challenges, constraints and sorrows. Tabula Rasa is the poetry of new beginnings and wide vistas, and speaks to women across boundaries. Women’s lives – past, present and future – are echoed in these pages.

About this book

The poets who have contributed to this anthology represent every stage of a woman’s life and come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Some are new voices. Others – Maria Jastrzebska, Charlotte Gann and Jess Richards to name but a few – are award-winning authors. Together they create a rich soundtrack that sings of what we have achieved and what is still to be done.
