Sneak peek of Aubade After A French Movie

I am really looking forward to the publication of a new chapbook with Broken Sleep Books titled Aubade After a French Movie this October.

Here is a sneak peek of the cover and one of the poems, a translation of Medieval poet Gwerful Mechain’s ‘Ode to the Cunt’!

This pamphlet features new translations of Medieval Welsh poet, Gwerful Mechain, renowned for her proto-feminist and erotic poetry. Altogether, the translations and original poems channel Gwerful’s audacious spirit. They question why in the twenty-first century, women are still policed and discouraged in talking about sex, desire, and the body. They ask what might happen if women were set free.
