Muses and Furies

Conjure myth, magic, fable and feminism at a powerful reading by writers Jacqueline Saphra, Jessica Mookherjee and Julia Webb.

Jacqueline Saphra’s Dad, Remember You Are Dead is a sister volume to her TS Eliot Prize-shortlisted All My Mad Mothers. It is an examination of fatherhood, daughterhood, damage and redemption.

Jessica Mookherjee’s second collection, Tigress, mixes myth and migration, surveying childhood and family.

Julia Webb’s second collection, Threat, is detailed and disturbing, where the sometimes brutal undertow of small-town existence seeps to the surface of unsettling poems.

These three leading voices in contemporary poetry are published by Nine Arches Press.
