About the event
Rejoicing in the recently launched anthology, ‘The Alphabet of Women”, (Ginninderra Press, 2022) twenty-six women will gather around the laden table to intimately play with prose and poetry whilst feasting on a delicious lunch. Let’s creatively explore what womanhood signifies both personally and universally, uncovering the oftentimes elusive, spiritual and challenging ways that combine our stories as one.
Be part of a celebration of womankind with founder and curator of this compendium of women poets, Miriam Hechtman, who will guide us all on a journey of lyrics and rhymes ending with a great crescendo of magical delight.
Plus ... The extraordinary Miriam Lieberman will be performing her music and song.

ABOUT The Alphabet of Women This anthology brings together poets to tell the story of woman through the sounds and cadences of the alphabet. From rage to tenderness, politics to the body, motherhood to daughterhood, vaginas to mother earth, poets were invited to tell it like it is and follow their heart. This anthology is powerful in its diverse expressions of what womanhood means and acknowledges in both subtle and formidable ways how multifaceted and still bravely unifying this story is.
