I clicked on the clicky thing but a rather turgid thing about birds appeared so I clicked on Frances Leviston and then read 'Humbles' and what a contrast, bloody, disgusting, terrible, visceral, brilliant!
yes - for whatever reason the Guardian haven't updated the poem of the week online to Frances Leviston's poem yet, but I'm glad you found her website - that poem is very powerful isn't it - and her others are good as well
The gender imbalance in the representation of poetry in the press is quite alarming once you start to look out for it!

yes it is - and no I haven't read that but thanks Sophie I will look out for it when I'm back from my holiday!
found it - now on wish list!! And another good read is Modern women poets edited by Deryn Rees Jones (Bloodaxe) - a very rich wide ranging selection
