Songs My Enemies Taught Me is a collection of back alley poetry and flick knife tales detailing women s struggle against sexual terrorism and colonisation. Songs of independence. Songs of survival. Songs of uprising. Comprised of poetry, text messages, landays, letters and news flashes these are stories plucked from women s lips across the globe and re-imagined by award-winning poet, playwright, and author Joelle Taylor. Some stories are her own. Others are yours.
Joelle appeared at the first two Verve Festivals, performing at and hosting the wonderful OutSpoken Press Showcase event, and then in year three she judged and hosted our competition event! Needless to say we’re BIG BIG fans!
