Editor’s Note

The second volume of wild voices is a direct response to the success of the first volume published in 2017. In the vein of its predecessor, this year has collected over 70 contemporary voices in short-poetry and art exploring aspects of women’s experience. It is by no means a definite collection attempting to map out any leading names, but rather aims to provide a ‘snapshot’ of the short poem and closely related art, interpreted by women poets and artists around the world. The submissions received shaped this volume.

The call for submissions for this venture was prompted by the international women’s day in 2016. With a background in anthropology and gender studies, my drive as an editor was to include work across the artistic community of the short poem, to provide a sample of expressions across the spectrum. The result is a celebration of not only the short poem and its many variations (ranging from haiku, senryu, tanka and closely related short-form styles, to that of the ‘micropoem’ and free verse poetry more broadly) but also, of the female voice in poetry and art, so often neglected or marginalised. The wild voices volumes attempt to somehow help readjust the imbalance, nothing more, nothing less.

I hope you will enjoy this year’s helping of poetry and art, by some of the most exciting voices of the short poetry community, ranging from the experienced to those new on the scene.
