"We are killjoys, painting portraits
of tulips in full-bodied growth,
when you ask to see us naked
we hand you an album of flowers."

By turns tender and intimate, forthright and unabashed, the lustful feminist killjoys explore inclusivity, equality and identity to combat imposter syndrome and patriarchy.
An eloquent collection about desire and loss from the founders of Stirred feminist collective.

"This collection is legs open and unapologetic, it's warm and echt, a charming celebration of the female experience." - Keisha Thompson, poet, singer & theatre practitioner

"This collection is anything but killjoy. These are poems putting women in art, legend, literature, and life squarely in the female experience instead of the usual male gaze. Sexy, stunning, and perfect. Anna and Rebecca's work here is exhilarating - LFK is a necessary book." - Kate Garrett, writer & editor

"As bracing as a sharp wind on a bright winter's day. Sexy, funny, forceful." - Dr Rebecca Bilkau, poet & playwright

RUNNER UP Best Collaborative Work, Saboteur Awards 2015

Sarah and Melanie met when they shared a big white house on an island, next to a passing place. They waded out, sang selkie songs to a seal they named Sir Douglas, shared stories, poems, wine and secrets, and decided to create something together.
This is their potent and poetic debut collection.

Includes a Foreword by Gerry Potter.

"This is a collection to enjoy slowly, piece by piece, like the very finest chocolates - and then, because it's better than chocolates, to enjoy and appreciate again and again." - Cathy Bryant, poet & editor of Best of Manchester Poets

"Rees and Miller depict our awkward, impossible world using believable voices that complement each other, summoning up lovers, relatives and totemic birds to capture the idiocy / wonder / terror of life." - copland smith, poet

"From Sydney to Scotland via Salford and Barrow-in-Furness, Melanie and Sarah transport the reader to strange yet recognisable worlds." - Rosie Garland, poet, novelist & March Violet

Working Verse Collective are three lads on a mission and their mission statement is this: Eloquence is irrelevant when nobody in the room knows what you meant...
Join Kieren King, Dave Viney and Benny-jo Zahl as they expertly weave humour, insight and the unexpected throughout their quest to discover if they have "The Right Stuff" - and what that actually is and if they want it anyway.
It may well be one small step for man, but it's One Giant Leap for Ladkind.

Includes the script for Amateur Thematics, their acclaimed poetry theatre show which premiered at The Lowry Theatre, and a Foreword by Dominic Berry

"Unique and refreshing." - Joy France, Write Out Loud

"The boys have given Manchester's poetry scene a much needed shot in the arm." - Gerry Potter, poet & playwright

"Working Verse are three men who love football, music, pubs, clubs and poems... To read this book is to take a trip through the lives of lads who are not your typical poetic voices." - Dominic Berry, poet & director
