An ongoing poetry project by Joolz Sparkes and Hilaire to unearth the voices of strong, feisty women who have lived and worked in the capital city over many centuries. Each poet focuses on her different patch of London – Joolz north of the river and Hilaire, south – bringing to life the imagined, real, everyday and extraordinary women whose untold stories lie just beneath the surface.
We have recently been awarded Arts Council funding to further develop our project over the coming months. The grant will cover the cost of a mentor, as well as some research and writing time to develop new material.
