Everyone is warmly welcome to join Inventions of the Text, for poetry reading and critical thinking with Dr Kim Moore.
“Moore’s poetic testimonials expose the underbelly of society’s misogynist micro-infractions” (Malika Booker)
“This book is a revolutionary and subversive requisition of the female gaze, and it will be canonical” (Fiona Benson)
Praise given to Kim Moore’s All the Men I Never Married, which the poet will be reading from at Inventions of the Text on Wednesday 4 May. Alongside her reading, Kim will draw on her critical research to talk about why poetry is an ideal medium for examining experiences of sexism.
Creative Writing Lecturer, Manchester Metropolitan University
