June’s guest bloggers

A new month means new guest bloggers – with thanks for all of May’s contributions. In June we can look forward to perspectives from:

Claire Askew – in her own words, “a writer, community educator and intersectional feminist. She’s about to complete a ranty feminist PhD in Creative Writing and Contemporary Women’s Poetry with the University of Edinburgh. Claire has won numerous accolades for her written work, including, most recently, a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award and the inaugural International Salt Prize for Poetry. She works as a lecturer in Further Education and also with women’s groups like Edinburgh’s Women Supporting Women and Scottish Women’s Aid. Claire lives in Edinburgh, collects manual typewriters and blogs regularly at onenightstanzas.com“.


G.L. Wild, who describes herself as “an ageing member of the precariat currently working as an administrator for a mental health charity. Nominally an Oxford law graduate. Hobbies include slacktivism and petting other people’s cats.” (Blog here!)

Welcome to you both!
